It's not so simple in v1.  In v2 the MarkupToHTML function can be called
to convert the markup text into HTML, and then you could strip out the
HTML tags to get just the resulting text.   If this becomes an important
enough feature, we might be able to generate an alternate translation 
table that is used to convert markup text into "plain text".

Nope.  Basically you can do a preg_split on blank lines to get the
paragraphs out.

Indeed, while working on v2's search function I noticed this bug as well.
I'll probably change the search to use RetrieveAuthPage instead of ReadPage
to get the pages to be searched.
