It searches message bodies, as well. But I agree, I liked the old way
better. You could choose which list to search. Also, you cannot easily
modify your query because the search page doesn't give the same search
form. It just gives a cgi form. Hitting the back button doesn't work
either because the words "Enter Text Here" replace your search query.
Very annoying.
