The Fisheye manual says that it indexes file contents by default, so you
can use its EyeQL query language to do full-text searches of your files.

It only indexes the first million words in each file, though, and it
only indexes HEAD revisions... And I don't know whether you can search
for regular expressions or just single words; the documentation isn't
clear on that point.
