All of the material doesn't have to be on the same site to be searchable, I
don't think. Can't you setup a Google app to search only what site/sites you
want and then continually edit that list? I don't mean the Google main
search site, I mean the one you can install on your own site. That way you'd
have this massive database similar to the web itself but using only sites
that pertain to vintage computing. Dead links would be reported somehow or a
spider could check the base sites on a regular basis.
