Good one!  Seriously, I will comment on this directly later on, but
I just thought I'd throw in these stats from a recent study -- the
largest search engines are aware of no more than 16 percent of pages
on the web.  Yahoo (arguably the most _popular_) knows about something
like half of that.  And the worst (among them Yahoo) for registration
can take as long as six months to get to you from the time you tell
them you exist.

I've got the full report here somewhere, and can bring it up for all
to see if desired.  Just wanted to shoot something off on this one.
