I might be getting a little ahead of myself here, but I wanted to kick
this idea around a bit. Flock [www.flock.com] is basically an uber-hyped
up version of firefox with web 2.0 goodness that is out through the
roof. Now, if we were to expand the indexing of our web history stuff,
it would seem that opera would be the next choice, but flock stores a
lucene index of every page visited using CLucene....

Now, I dunno a lot about the specifics of lucene compatibility, but it
would seem to me, that with maybe a little coordination from the flock
folks (they have been nothing but extraordinarily friendly and helpful
so far) we could query that index directly for easy (and basically free)
access to a complete web history index.

Just getting the idea out there. This is kinda outside my experience,
since it would not be a traditional backend by any means, but its a
thought. I see the biggest issue at the moment being a cost-benefit
thing, since flock can't exactly claim a huge marketshare at the moment,
but it seems like this might actually be something not too impossible.
