Thanks, this looks great.  I just tried it on Windows XP searching for
a fixed string in the Emacs repository -- took 28 seconds with a cold
cache and only 7.5 with a warm cache, which is impressive.

By contrast, "grep -F -R" (with suitable --exclude patterns, to
prevent it from searching binary files and inside .bzr) took about
12.5 seconds with a warm cache.
