...only goes back 1 week?!

I know it's a real-time micro-blog and I know that real-time means 'stuff that is happening now'.
But if I search twitter, I don't just want to see realtime posts from now... I might want to see realtime posts from one year ago.
Is it an issue of server load?

Twitter does have a cutoff for tweet retention, and there are actually services that will back up your tweets (if you think they are worth saving).

Yes, I know, I use one. But if there isn't a comprehensive archive (is archive.org keeping one?) then surely this is a serious oversight?
What if a journalist or academic (or anyone else for that matter) wants to look at the twitter stream one night before the 2008 US Presidential election. Is that data gone forever?

Any Twitter maestros out there?
