 Extend search to include pages and other things.  The more comprehensive
 the better, limited only by performance considerations.  Care will need to
 be taken when including pages in the search results since themes that
 display full post content may break. Putting a filter that strips tags
 from page content returned in search results would suffice.  The search
 should be as hookable as possible to allow customization via plugin.

 Possible things to search on:

  * Post title, content, excerpt, author, tags, categories
  * Page title, content, excerpt, author, tags, categories
  * Comment content, author
  * Post/page meta fields

 Features that would be nice to have:

  * Order search by relevance
  * Excerpt relevant areas of content, search engine style
