wascii add-on

Since the beginning of the week I'm using wascii from Dag Wieers, I'm very happy with it but something was really missing for a power daily use : a search function !

After a chat with a colleague trying to code in python because he wanted to implement some Jabber application I decided to search some PHP solution.

Have fun with it ;-)
