Communications Suite Toolkit: Search Engines

We've been talking internally about putting together a page of useful Communications Suite tools to help you better manage your Comms deployments. It will be a while before we get this page (site, wiki, whatever) off the ground, but in the meantime, the discussion got me thinking about searching for Comms Suite information.
