[PD] searching the email archive for common words

Hi list,

the biggest wealth of information about Pd might lie in the mailing list
archives at http://lists.puredata.info/pipermail/pd-list/
Searching these archives for words which appear very often, such as
"extended" "Gem" etc will return messages from the search algorithm,
that these words are excluded from the results as there are too many
occurrences. That might make sense, but renders the usability of the
search algorithm very useless for certain requests.

Could there be a way to improve this? Or are there already other methods
of searching the mailing list archive, besides downloading the raw
700+MB archive?
