mnoGoSearch currently does not index pages, which require user
groups. It just does not index them :) This is on my TODO list. User
groups and advanced search form is the only two remaining tasks that
I need to do. I hope to have them fast.

It was not a good idea to fork. He should have worked with SVN
version of the extension and propose a patch. Now all great latest
enhancements are lost for him.

Well, if you think it is easy, I will not argue ;) In my opinion
this is a hard thing to do.

Engine is available but PHP extension is not. And it cannot be
compiled because Windows version of mnoGoSearch does not export
necessary functions. No way :( Just no way at all :(
