So guys, what do you think?  Gold, or feeping creaturism?

I kind of like it, but I'm not convinced of its usefulness.  I would think 
that for most songs, scanning the lyrics with your eyes would suffice to find 
your place, and is probably at least as fast as searching.

However, as Carles said, for non-English speakers especially, it could be 
useful.  So I'm leaning towards saying that we should include this, but only 
if the user activates it via Ctrl-F (which isn't too unintuitive, as it 
behaves like searching for most other apps).
