If you do this, it will index all of /section1/ and /section2/ and
then results will be returned from both sections unless you use the
restrict field.

My understanding is that you want a search form to search only
/section1/ and another to search only /section2/. In that case you'll
want to use restrict.

But if, for example, /section2/ is a private section and you don't
want it to be available in any way to the /section1/ search form, you
need to do something beyond restrict.

That's what I've been trying to say for this. Does that make sense?
