Working on the search has caused me to mull on a particular problem:
Which searches will currently find "King's head"?

has been worked around with a redirect.
Also, I'm wondering about having a list of standard abbreviations somewhere,
which gets applied in-line as part of the node_name_to_node_title munging:

hse => house
rd => road
st => street
st => saint ...oops!
This is the end of my braindump on this. I need input from others.
It will also be generating more test cases for the search :).
