Corey, I agree. It's my contention that any large blog site needs the search
and browsing features that Scrib provides.

Yes. Any data in the taxonomy tables will work, including posts and tags.

Each facet widget can display one or more facets based on the taxonomy name.
You probably have 'category' and 'post_tag' , the other taxonomies you're
seeing are for library records.
This isn't obvious for your application. I'm working on the 2.9 version now
and am removing much of the library-specific stuff. Hopefully that will make
it easier going forward.

Some might call it a bug, but there's no way to do OR queries. All of the
terms are ANDed together for the result. The built in search and browse
navigation is progressive, but one term at a time. You can, however, easily
construct links that point to a search of multiple criteria in one click.
For instance, here's all the photos of the Colby-Sawyer dorms of the 1930s
in their archives:
