search works again

Yay! Search works again. Only on entries, not rants, and it's a little slow, but it's better than a sharp stick in the eye. Quoted strings require exact match, prefixed "+" requires, prefixed "-" excludes, ranking is by number of non-prefixed words matched. Anyone know of conventions for partial matches, or should I just give y'all access to the full regular expression search?

The problem is that we use several different types of markup and the user is really searching on the marked-up text (until I get really heinous and fix everything right). And when I fix stuff I'm going to have to restrict the search again 'cause sequential searching sucks. I don't wanna give the users features that they can't have always.
