Just so everyone knows who is reading this, the '&' in the URLs in an XML file should have an 'amp;' right after or else the search plugin won't work (since it would have an invalid XML file).  My last email decided not to show that for since it auto-linked part of the line. grrr...

Anyways, yes, multiple easy solutions to a small problem.

this is also an option, because the search tool is simple really, its
not anything critical, just a handy hack.
once its installed, its stored in
so you can edit it to choose a particular version.

i'm not saying that there shouldn't be multiple plugins for the
versions, its just too many moving parts for a simple, non critical
