Thanks Brian. I want to have a flexible search capability and that is
indeed one of the things that would be good to have. I have a feeling it is
going to be a bit slow so will need some tricks or compromise. For
instance, only search if no key pressed for .5 seconds, so it not
interrupting typing..
