Pmwiki search and pagelist only returns a list of pages.
Pm mad eit clear many times that he is not interested in
adding showing terms in context to the Pmwiki search.

For TextExtract I cannot just use PmWiki's search engine,
because we need to extract text. But thanks to your suggestion I was
inspired to look at the handling of search terms again, and will
incorporate the way PmWiki's search handles search terms, so we can
have input like
  'abc xyz' => output with 'abc' AND 'xyz' in the page;
  '"abc def" xyz' => output with 'abc def' AND 'xyz' in the page;
  'abc -xyz' => output with 'abc' but NOT 'xyz' in the page;
  'abc|xyz' => output with 'abc' OR 'xyz' in the page;
