in reply to Lack of structure. Channeling structure

you know, I wonder if a book such as this is overkill, but if the index pages to such books wouldn't be valuable? Basically have an index of the site word for word. I know we can search, but I've always thought that a good index in a book has yet to be matched in power by any search engine in terms of getting immediate results.

I envision having listsings like:

eval(34,789) - 12334(3), 56789(23), ....

where eval is our word, the first number is the total amount of times it was found, then node_ids where it was found are listed one by one, with the number of times it was found on them. Maybe one could even make that index searchable so that you could weed out certian words to have a very short list of things to go through. Perhaps we could even have a separate index for just node titles and there there would be a count of how many times the word appears in the title and the body...

just the first thing that came to me reading this one =)
