Feature Proposal: Be able to search MS word doc attachments.

Motivation

If a customer is just starting with TWiki, it is very likely that they already have a number of documents that were authored in MS word and they don't want to take the time to import them into TWiki. This would clearly be a huge time savings for anyone just starting out.

Description and Documentation

Customer just starting with TWiki uploads a lot of MS word attachments. The person enters a search term and if the term is found inside the MS word doc, the search points the person to the attachment.

Discussion

There is already a plugin for that: SearchEngineKinoSearchAddOn. It also searches other types of files, like xls, ppt and pdf.
