--- Comment #4 from Joshua Bell <jsbell@chromium.org> ---
This seems like the right IDB building block for implementing "full text
search", with implementations providing other pieces like word splitting and
stemming.

Agreed about the details. Although something like "String($).split(/\s+/)"
would work for toy cases (assuming JS), any real implementation would require
expressions to have access to non-trivial library functions, or access to
non-trivial host objects.
