Small correction - OpenGuides search is built on top of Wiki::Toolkit
search.  OpenGuides admins can choose in their config file whether to
use the S::II, Plucene, or Lucy backends for this.  Since 2004 the
default search backend has been Plucene, but before that it was S::II.

Hence it's conceivable that there are old OpenGuides installs still
running on the S:II backend.  (Though I can confirm that Vegan Oxford,
Croydon, and RGL are all running on Plucene.)
