Finally done! I think. Most of the final work was writing the docs.

So there's documentation, nnir.el is in obsolete/, and I've defaulted
`gnus-search-use-parsed-queries' to nil, so that no one is surprised.
I also implemented a search engine for gmane, then removed it in one
separate commit, in case one fine day we get that back again it will be
easy to revert the removal.

I think it's ready to go! I'm sure there are bugs but it shouldn't be
too disruptive, since there's a big Turn It On switch people will have
to flip, and they can just turn it off again.
