I don't know how big of a deal this would be, but it
would be nice to use regular expressions or wildcard
like characters in the search box. EX: I want to search
the description, I know the company name, BLAH, and I
know the thing I want to work on is TEST. Now I would
have to search for either BLAH or TEST, but with regex
I could search for /BLAH[A-Za-z0-9]*TEST/ and it would
cut down on the number of results to look through.

    Or a MySQL style LIKE 'BLAH % TEST' wildcard character would
    be enough and easier for everyone to use.
