Updating built-in Joomla 1.5 search module to interface with the Wordpress MU 2.x plugin?

I manage a Joomla site (v1.5.23) that has a Wordpress MU plugin installed in it (v2.8.6):

Unfortunately, there is no integration whatsoever between Joomla's built-in search engine and the Wordpress MU plugin.

Updating either Joomla or the Wordpress MU plugin to the latest version(s) is NOT an option.  

How would I go about updating Joomla's search engine so that it also searches (and returns results for) the blog entries in Wordpress MU?

Thanks,

Well, yeah.  They're two totally different systems.

You would have to rewrite the module so that it indexes/searches the wp-posts and wp-postsmeta tables making sure to handle all of the relationships properly.  Not something I would recommend.  If everything is contained under one domain name, you might want to forget about the dual internal searches and switch to a Google custom search instead.
