But how many people even bother to look at these pages?

I'll repeat what I said a few days ago in another thread: even the
Mailman archives (i.e. the archives of the mailman-users list) don't
have a search box! See which confirms
this and suggests several alternatives.

I'm sure if was easy to do this it would have been done long ago and
this list would have a search function. Note: *easy*, not *possible*.
