Photoshop Layer Search

Anyone know of a way to search via keyword the layers of a psd file? I wish this functionality was built into photoshop.

I work at a TV news station that uses photoshop for all of the on air daily graphics. Because of the quick turn around we store all of the graphics we create as layer sets in a master photoshop file. Every layer is named and organized as well as photoshop will allow (i.e. all mugshots are in a mugshots layer set with a naming convention of "lastname, firstname").

I know that this can be accomplished with a script, but the only one that I have found is incredibly slow (and I can understand that it may be - the files are huge - 1.5 gigs with around 1,000 layers) but I figured I would ask...
