heh. and then terry could combine that with the "remembrance agent".

Package: remembrance-agent
Description: Emacs mode to help find relevant texts
 The Remembrance Agent is one of the projects being developed by the
 MIT Media Lab's software agents group.  Given a collection of the
 user's accumulated email, usenet news articles, papers, saved HTML
 files and other text notes, it attempts to find those documents which
 are most relevant to the user's current context.  That is, it
 searches this collection of text for the documents which bear the
 highest word-for-word similarity to the text the user is currently
 editing, in the hope that they will also bear high conceptual
 similarity and thus be useful to the user's current work.  These
 suggestions are continuously displayed in a small buffer at the
 bottom of the user's emacs buffer.  If a suggestion looks useful, the
 full text can be retrieved with a single command.

something i keep meaning to start using..
