Hey, the search in finish is rather poor. It works fairly well to find which
log a word occurred in, but it's terrible for actually finding where in a
log a word occurred.

It would be really nice if there was something like readline's ctrl+r where
one could just do a reverse search in the current buffer.

Would something like this be feasible?

tyranny is as great as any threat from abroad. If we want to be worthy of
their legacy, we must resist the rush toward ever-increasing state control
of our society. Otherwise, our own government will become a greater threat
to our freedoms than any foreign terrorist."
