Well, the first rough cut of integrated cardfile database and HTML
now works. 

Implemented as follows :

 class SearchEngineResource -> User interface for searching contains...
 class SearchResultResource -> One for each search request processed,
                               operates on ....
 interface Searchable       -> Provides primitive search functions,
                               implemented by...
 class SearchDirectoryResource -> Primitive directory searching
                                  (linear,  no index/cache yuk!) and....
 class CardFileResource     -> Contains cardfile, implements
So, using one SearchEngineResource (or sub-class it for different
interfaces) you can search a resource tree of seachable objects -
either directories or cardfiles, and get one combined result back.

Next steps, improved interfacing, efficient directory search, better
result reporting.
