Hmm. I'll think about doing this - it shouldn't be too hard (if people are
willing to put up with a second or two of delay), my main concern here is
avoiding interface clutter.

Also, as an alternative, you can use the Rev "Find" menu item and set it to
search the folder with the documentation stacks - this will get you a list
of cards with a hit.
