Hmm... if I limit the search to "functions" and enter "conditional
logistic" the clogit function is the 17th of 18 hits.  It's good that it
found it, but sort of weird it ranks it so low.

Among other things the search engine seems not to give points for the
search words being in the page title (I think it's the only one that
meets this requirement) or to their adjacency.
