[plt-scheme] documentation feature requests

I usually get into the documentation with searches, either with esc-F1  
to search for the currently selected symbol or by selecting "Help  
Desk" from the Help menu (in Mac OS X) and then doing a search from  
there. When search fails I'm pretty frustrated and then start hunting  
through the docs from the ToC. BTW my searches often fail because my  
search term doesn't occur in a defined symbol name, or whatever else  
the searches search, even if it occurs in the documentation itself.  
It'd be nice to have searches that search over all of the text in the  
documentation, at least optionally.
