What do people think of moving the "Find" functionality into a toolbar (like
Firefox)? I have a change ready that implements this and I'd like to get
feedback on it. This is my first foray into this project: is there a process
for this? The diff includes some binaries which svn diff won't dump, so I'm
not quite sure how to get it out to the maintainers.
The benefits of this UI are:
* The find window obscured part of the terminal when the terminal is very
large. This one is always out of the way.
* Repeated searching is easier because the find UI does not disappear after
finding the first match.
* If you have a large scrollback buffer then you want to search "Previous"
rather than "Next" most of the time. In this UI, Enter searches backwards
and shift-Enter searches forwards.
