If you don't know it yet:

The search features from there are quite handy, didn't find anything like it 
in your tool yet.

Also, a quick check of the pf source (what else) didn't turn up the cool 
feature you were talking about (i.e. filling in the $OpenBSD versions) 

It's really fast, though!  How long does an index run take? On what hardware?  
How much space does it need for metadata?  Does it index incremental?
