Couldn't the search button this person is looking for be implemented in
a much easier fashion by simply having the search button launch the
Gnome Search Tool starting in whatever folder the user is in at the

A nautilus script could do this by first cd'ing into the dir and then
launching the gnome-search-tool.  Why the gnome-search-tool does not
take a directory path on the command line is beyond me but anyway. 
However, a nautilus script is not as nice as having a button staring the
user literally in the face.
