I went down this path a while ago:


I ended up using a mysql query. If your worried about the text portion of the
search, mysql 4.0 is said to be better with them, I do not know about yak

Otherwise you could probably do it with two searches. To bad you could not link
itl searches. i.e., find this, then find this within that, then find this
within that. You could of course manually :)
