I really believe you do have enough feedback to judge. You do know
that, if we publicize Search, it'll be ultra useful for users.

If you want to know what users want, take a look at fedoraforum, or
any other place where users hang around. Or just ask. Like Ubuntu
does. Just don't expect volunteer contributors to follow. They'll
scratch their own itch, as always. And that's good. =)
