I'm all for more flexible search and indexing. But I fail to see how
it is more modular to move all the code from a module and into an
include file. Modules can already by be swapped for alternate
implementations using our usual modules page. So this would just move
something that can be done in the UI into something that has to be
done by hand.

Probably you want to do some refactoring along the way which is the
important part of the proposal.
