This is what the search line in 2.1 is all about.

sounds reasonable, added to the TODO

Sounds interesting, I've put it on the TODO, to think more about.

| initialise a search directly from this, but I think that it would make my
| way of working much easier (I dislike surplus dialog boxes).

Having trouble finding a given image in your collection containing
thousands of images?
