I accidentally made a new project: toy full-text-search manpage index tool with sqlite3

The notable thing about it is that it has a custom IO layer that g{,un}zips the database data implemented as an sqlite3 VFS extension with Rust FFI

That looks very useful. There are times when apropos just isn't enough.

@outsider indeed, just keep in mind this is a day's work and it's super rough :)
