I appreciate that Kevin says it is on their downstream list but there 
are two other suggestions for you in the mean time. Randy suggests use 
the tools you have - copy the data to a Rev stack and use its Find and 
Match functions, which makes sense.

My own solution is more platform-dependent, in that I simply save any 
potentially interesting post on disk and use Sherlock's content search 
to find even oblique references.

If you are not on a Mac you can mix the methods by saving relevant files 
to disk (faster than copy-paste) and using your newly-minted database 
Rev stack to auto-read and delete all files in that directory at 
intervals, saving you a bit of effort creating the database.
