The SQLite pagestore class is "able" to index page text variables (PTVs) and 
links, the database structure is prepared for this, but currently it does not 
do it. A local customization (a recipe, a new function) could be hooked to 
the recipe and do it. (Both the indexing and the query code should be added.)

Note that PTVs can be indexed only when pages are saved in the database. Pages 
not yet in the database cannot be found. If an administrator changes the PTV 
patterns, like add (::Var:value::) or (:Var=value:), each page will be 
updated to index its new PTVs when it is saved. All this may may cause some 
pages to not be found until they are edited and saved.

Even if I've used this recipe on all my wikis since 2006, I haven't done the 
PTV indexing yet because I didn't need it. And I feel there is not many 
admins interested in and using this recipe.
