Jonathan had committed to keep his site up (and gave a very detail set of
instructions on how to reconstruct the search page, in case his can not be
maintained), before RSiteSearch() was admitted to base R.  Is the search
site Adai mentioned the `official' BioC archive search page?

BTW, Jonathan's search page already includes (all?) BioC packages.  The only
missing part is the mailing list archives.
