	Hey folks! For some background on this, see:

	The question is this--should we be searching comments in quicksearch
*at all*? Is it actually valuable to you or your users that when you
type a bare word into quicksearch, it searches the comments in addition
to searching everything else?

	There have been a few complaints about result quality with the
system--that searching comments results in a lot of extra results that
people don't need, and that it's easy enough to just type "comm:" or
"desc:" and also search comments that way if you really want to.
