Just a note: I prefer gopher's model of interaction when it
comes to index nodes. Rather than having a special <ISINDEX>
tag and a "find" command, have a different anchor type. The
user first chooses the "search this index" anchor; then, to
follow an index anchor link, the client prompts for the
query details and makes the query.

Seems cleaner, simpler, and more flexible.
