Advanced Search capabilities

    Any chance of implementing some enhanced Search capabilities that would enable someone to use Boolean operators (AND, OR...maybe even XOR for the techno-wonks...;->) in some fashion?

    Wouldn't necessarily need to explicitily use those words, e.g. the way this is implemented on eBay's Search function is that a space between two words implies a logical AND between them, while two words are enclosed in ()'s and separated by commas implies logical OR. Just an example.

    Additional Search enhancements: allow wildcards (*, !), though this may have an unacceptable performance impact. And I find the Search function occasionally complains when it sees words of insufficient length (e.g. G5, I believe).

    The Search function as it exists today is good, though I've found that looking for tube recommendations for the Mesa Boogie Bass 400+ (for example) either yields too many results, or too few.
