Full text searching of iManage or Hummingbird

Is it just me, or is it too much to ask that a DMS would actually allow you to do enterprise-wide full text searching without choking? I recently got a demo of iManage v8, which purports to address this issue by taking advantage of the Verity search engine which they use. Unfortunately, it still doesn't do the basic things like search result ranking that many need. Firms have been relegated to acquiring full blow versions of Verity, Autonomy, Recommind and other 100k+ products to meet this very basic goal. Hopefully, either the vendors themselves will address this, or a 3rd party tool will come to the forefront that firms can buy, which doesn't cost six figures to address this problem.

Does anyone out there have any success stories to share?
