Sorry, it's a bit obscure:


We've now retired the 1.2 release branch apart from this directory so
it perhaps should be re-homed in its own repo, but I'm a bit loathe to
break the history and particularly the ability to git blame, git
bisect, git log -S<string>, etc.

We could at least make a search-xapian branch for it though, and link
to that from the README.

That's fine - the pace of change is slow.  It mostly still exists
because the SWIG-generated Perl bindings don't provide a fully
compatible API.
