PPS: However, if you think what you've done is of general use and is a
better default for everyone, you want to maybe just commit it to trunk
as the default search page? The search page is not very carefully
thought out, if you're improved it and want to just share your
improvements as the default, we might want to do that?
But I'll say the reason I didn't include 'article author' on the page is
because 95% of the time it doesn't help SFX find the article AT ALL, so
it was just asking someone to spend their time entering something that
was pretty much useless, I felt like it implied a 'false promise' that
we could actually do something with the title they entered.
