It would not be too difficult to write a small filter function to process 
HTML documents so that only text from their meta tags was passed on as 
document content (I have my own filter functions to process documents that 
could lend themselves to this task).

To get this working quickly one could use, for example, a special version 
of the spider to strip the file of all but meta tags. If you are indexing 
using the FILESYSTEM method, a copy of the file with just the meta-tags, 
coupled with a string translation on the path, would also achieve much the 
same result.

One would then write an interface that used the "meta tags only" index when 
the user requested such a search.
