I'm not sure if this is something that would affect the situation, but Moin
1.6 apparently has Xapian integration. So if Xapian is used in one way or
another, we could maybe get better search results from the wiki as well. I've
never used Xapian (with or without Moin) though, so I don't have any
experience on it.
Yes, Moin is able to use Xapian for searching. It should be somewhat
easy to export and merge Xapian data from Moin into a larger search
system. It might also be quicker to index data "internally" (read: just
have Moin index itself) rather then asking Moin to render pages for an
external indexer to read.
