 When I looked at Yahoo! search last (probably ~6 months ago) it was
 only possible to set it to limit the first search to freebsd.org, but
 subsequent searches where generic, which is not really optimal.
 For reasons, which has been discussed many times before, I don't
 really think using Google search is an option.
 It would be great if somebody could improve our current search
 solution which, despite wosch's hard work on it, still seem to have
 problems often.  Rambler has also offered that we could probably use
 their system for search, but unfortunately I haven't had time too look
 more at that.
