Search Highlight

For the Show Log dialog, I think it would be nice to see some sort of
highlighting support for search terms. For example, if I search the word
"Bob", that should highlight anything that matches, including but not
limited to:

   - User Names
   - Log Messages
   - Paths (in the bottom pane)

Basically, any location in the Show Log dialog where search terms are
applied, there should be some sort of highlight or other indicator that
makes it obvious where the exact location of the search term is.

Another alternative would be to gray out items in the file list at the
bottom for paths that did not match the search terms. This, however, could
create an ambiguity with the graying out that is already done for items or
paths that reference files outside of the directory where the show log was

My main motivation for requesting this was that I was searching for a
specific file in the show log dialog, and in one revision there were
hundreds of files changed. I had a hard time scrolling through the list
trying to find all of the files that had the word "Bob" in it, since they
were very scattered.

Let me know what you think of this idea.
