Take a look at http://beta.osdigger.com.  It is a mailing list search
engine I was working on about a year ago, unfortunately I've not had the
time to work on it since.  It is designed to scale to doing full text
ranked searches on millions of email messages in under a couple of seconds
on a single machine (currently PII-300).  It has a 'two-step' search
feature which brings back related terms to ones you put in (usually
:). eg. type in 'scsi controller' and chances are it will return adaptec
amongst the list of other terms.  The idea is to prompt the user to be
more specific with their search.

I would love to take more time to work on it again, and would like to
be able to access it from withing Zope and use it to catalog arbitary Zope
object like ZCatalog does.
