New issue 2116 by search should support the diffs themselves

What version are you running?

Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.
The search feature is much less useful to me than I had hoped it would be, since it does not index the diff files associated with a review, nor the comments people have made on the reviews. In our use case we only ever have 1 diff file (we do post-commit review), so the indexing is only on the order of the number of review requests, not a multiple of the diff-iterations per review request.

After spending 1.5 hours manually installing JCC, PyLucene, etc. on Ubuntu to get what I hoped would be an awesome feature, this is a bit frustrating...

What operating system are you using?
Ubuntu 9.04

Please provide any additional information below.
Notably, searching diffs & comments were 2 of the 4 requirements of the original feature request for adding search:

Where the submitter stated:

"Anyway, I think it'd definitely be useful to allow searching at least:

- titles
- descriptions
- diffs
- comments

I could not find any bug tracking these 2 missing search targets, so that's why this bug was filed.
