Most of the time true full-text indexing isn't needed for the Subject
since it's a normally indexed string with a max length.  I'd suggest
first approaching this by extending RT::Search::Googleish with an
overlay that instead of defaulting unknown and quoted words to Subject
searches, defaults them to Subject OR Content searches.  This will do
what you mean, and should be fairly simple.  I know we've done it for
support clients.  RT::Search::Googleish was written to be extensible
with minimal effort.
