[webkit-dev] trac.webkit.org links via Google.com

Yeah, I could see how that would be the case.  I expect it would be possible
to set it up to NOFOLLOW all the expensive links, but I doubt trac does that
out of the box, and it's probably not worth the effort.

I need to find a better solution for web-based search of our code.  Maybe
the magical LXR stuff in the works at Mac OS Forge (mentioned in the other
thread) will be the solution.

Thanks for your quick response.
