That's tough to do because each search mechanism is using its own
backend code. Plus, the multi-site searching thing doesn't support
booleans and although has a faster indexing backend (smaller data,
easier to index) is kinda limited to what it can do.

Once unzipped, they're each one big txt file, dude, who's gonna split
them up? ;-)

Probably be easiest to flag them in the main database so that the posts
aren't duplicated in like 5 places. Then just search the database
(using the current ASF asrchive mechanism) for entries which have that
"hand picked" flag. Except someone's got to do the menial task of
matching the hand-picked posts to specific articles in the ASF archive
database. :-) Then I can put a check-off box in the main search which
lets someone search for JUST hand-picked posts or sort hand-picked posts
first in the results automatically as the primary sort mechanism.
Actually, if the message IDs are available in the zip archives, then
there might be a way to automate it.

And really hard :-)
