This is really a old feature request rather than a bug report, but I wanted
to add it into the system. I like reverse indexes for human factors reasons.
However, wehn reverse indexes are generated there is no stability as to what
message is on what index page. As the archive progresses what's at any given
index page URL will change. Thus it is essentially impossible for search
engines like Google to give good results for a mhonarc reverse or treverse
index page. It would be nice if that weren't the case. This feature request
has an interaction with bug #372 and also mhonarc's "poor man's windowing"
