Mostly because all the CGIs return irrelevant content.  I'm indexing a
library site, and the CGIs access resources for various subjects.  The
purpose of my indexer/searcher is to sort of provide a gateway to where all
the content is, rather than return subject content.  For example, I don't
want information about philosophers in the 1800s, but I do want information
about where to find information about philosophers in the 1800s.  :)  (I
guess you could say I'm "meta-indexing.")
