That sounds indeed like a nice (bigger though) project. The search on
our phpbb already got replaced by sphinx, which is the most powerful
search we found up to a point we were still trying to optimize it. Now
it is mainly a selfrunner.
That's why it lately got a bit silent around our forum devs from our
team. Other areas needed help.

But if you want to volunteer.... ;)
