It was needed because the text= parameter is really used for posting
the text new pages, and there were a couple places where having the 
same name used for both was causing complications.  So I switched
to follow the Google standard (q=) instead.

I'm not sure what you're wanting the conversion script to "fix" in
this case -- are you asking for it to fix links to the search page
that have text= in them...?  If so I can probably do it (but need
a concrete example to work from).

It's not deliberate -- I just haven't yet figured out what it *should*
do yet.  Got any suggestions?
