If we have the option to use sphinx baked in search, instead of the
bounce out to google swift_search that's being installed, it's all
solved. The sphinx search builds the search terms into a compiled
javascript file on build, and will only link to content in the tree.

I think the thing to do is probably enhance openstackdocstheme to have
some toggle of "local_search = True" which would get rid of swift_search
and just use baked in local search. Then on a per site basic people
could turn it on / off, and openstackdocstheme could still be used for
sites that want global search.
