I can't promise anything, but it's quite probable. Apple has a site
license for OnLocation, so lately almost all of our CD-ROMs have shipped with
OL indexes on them. I'm not sure I have the time to set up a lisp-based 
index/retrieval system, but if you're interested in offering us your services 
and a working system, just lemme know. It all comes down to having lots of 
spare time, y'know...  :) 

By the way, like many System-7-savvy programs, OnLocation responds to 
AppleEvents. So without too much trouble, you could hack up lisp functions like 
meta-point and apropos to query OL directly (neat, huh?) 

I'm pretty sure (but don't quote me yet) that the MCL documentation will be 
included, in an online format that should make it relatively easy to search and
