See the custom commands for the agenda in the manual. You can create a
command to do a search in specific files.

The framework would be splitting your big org file into multiple files
and creating a custom search that search only in those particular
files. Of course you would need to change this custom command definition
if you add more files, but with the idea of using one file per year from
the other thread that means updating the custom command only once an

I didn't test this so see how searching in all of these files scale when
compared to searching in one big file, but I imagine it would be faster.
