That's the synopsis, for reminding people who know what they're doing. I
skimmed it, but as a newbie it made no sense so I went on to the proper
explanation. (of course the synopsis makes more sense now :)

The idea is to put the search button in the protected area too. Each one is
quite self-contained and there's no need to be able to find any of the
contents from the main unprotected area.  I haven't yet got as far as
thinking about what the search results might look like - that might be
tomorrow's task as it's time to go home. :-)

We'd probably survive that. The indexing needn't be very frequent at all,
they're fairly static as far as I can see.
