search or index capabilities desperately needed in yelp

Description of problem:
This might be upstream, or it might not - I see references to indexing
support in some of the upstream bugs, so I can't tell if it's
implemented or not.
Basically, not having the ability to search or index the help content
is a tremendous detriment to its useability.
For reference & ideas, see the help viewers in Mac OS X or even (I
know, I know) windows XP.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open help
2. wish you could search for something
Still a major shortcoming in FC3/yelp-2.6.3-1.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Still needed as of FC3/latest - yelp-2.6.3-1
Probably solveable in FC5 now that we have beagle
FC5 yelp now supports search! Yay. yelp-2.14.1-1.fc5.2
FWIW, I think the results format could use some formatting improvement (for
comparison, try "Mac Help" on OS X).
But I would consider my original complaint "closed".
