A document summarizer that utilizes search engine results
to get a list of documents.  It then retrieves all the documents
and analyzes each one in a separate process.  This could
be augmented by allowing peers to join the process space
temporarily to distribute the bandwidth requirements.  The
user would not have to deal with 404s and could see the
relevant summary (as well as skipping documents where the
content has changed since they were indexed).
