I've got about 75% of the work done on updating Cookbook/PageListPlus to
have an SQLite database in conjunction with (or replacement for) the
.pageindex.  I started doing it because of the difficulty I was running into
implementing linkfrom=x (possible but awkward with a flatfile index).  But
I've got PTVs cached as well and (I think optionally) putting search terms
in the database instead of in .pageindex.

Of course it's all "vaporware" right now, but I've made some pretty good
progress this last week and will hopefully finish off in the next week or 2,
depending on "intrusions" from real life...

It will almost certainly require php 5.0, just FYI.
