I'm looking at you New Zealanders. Is there relevant code in Kete that
could be hybridised with Koha to do this? (Or probably more properly as
a first step towards seeing this sort of functionality...) I have to
wonder if this is summat that Jo would have wanted by now... How much of
the graveyard search is automagic?
