Well, I described some months ago some of the issues with the current search features (such as not searching beyond doc titles etc.) but that is not at the core of the argument....
While I agree that activesearch would require some coding, I don't think it would be quite as pricey as you argue Martin..... Perhaps the diff is that I am thinking of something much less sophisticated. Yes, I would link the current Add a New Discussion button to the ajax for the active search, but only provide access to the actual submission form after the activesearch process had been completed. The activesearch would be external to mediawiki so no API issues. The db would have to be created - trained if you will, which would require a bit of work and would be subject to modification over time as pages moved, were added etc. but I am talking about a human engineered index, not a machine engineered index.
