That's pretty close to what I'm asking for, yes--though I think this
design has two large concerns. First, it wouldn't automatically hook
into the -r argument, which is the main reason I'm advocating this
option; and, second, you'd want to limit the searches to metadata with a
specific name (since log messages, for instance, would also qualify.
You know, I could see a use for a log message search...) Of course, I
would also imagine that this data's not currently stored in a format
that lends itself to searches...
