Not quite.  It would be nice to do keyword searches on the commit
comments, but that's not what I'm looking for now.

I want to perform a keyword search where the search space is the
_contents_ of all revisions of all files in the repository.

For example, I've checked out a file that doesn't compile because of an
unknown symbol.  I'd like to search my cvs repository for that symbol.
I'd like to know every revision of every file in the repository that
contains that revision.  So I search for "updateTimestamp", and the
search tells me that this keyword was found in, 1.4,
1.5, and 1.6.  The current revision of is 1.7, so now
I see where the symbol was originally defined, when it was created, and
in what revision it was removed.
