[KPhotoAlbum] Idea for quick search feature

I think having a search bar with basic 'search from everywhere, incl.
all catogories and folder names and descriptions etc' with basic 'and,
or, +(required), -(without)' would be great. Being able to define more
specific, like 'people: martin' makes it quite difficult for people to
understand what's going on. And I don't think one should be able to do
all the same searches from the search bar as from the search dialog -
this also means that I don't think KPA should be able to show all
search syntaxes made from the search dialogue, in the search box.
