This has been an on-and-off discussion that ought to be documented
somewhere -- well, at least its progress. I wouldn't say that there's
a total agreement on how it should be done, but here's my opinionated
If you know what you're looking for, you'll find it. If you don't know
what you're looking for, why are you looking for it?
Look at Tails (http://blog.codeeg.com/tails-firefox-extension) -- it
finds everything it understands, and nothing else. It won't find
hAtom, because it doesn't understand it. And it's perfectly fine -- if
you don't hAtom, I don't want you to be looking for it.
