It has occurred to me since writing that it might be sensible to provide
(somehow) for "add-on" modules to handle different metadata (and other)
formats -- somewhat like the modules approach taken with Apache, I
guess. As others have mentioned, we really need the ability to index RDF
as well as HTML.

However, I lay no claim to C skills, so someone else will have to
(hopefully) take up the challenge.
