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.
