Many people have requested it, but only a few have attempted it. Searching in real-time is out of the question -- the Archos is far too slow. The solution is to make a PC program that will index all files over USB and create a database.

The challenge is designing a clever database format that can be quickly indexed to find matches. Waste space to save CPU.
