I think so... :-)

I think that is fine to have this options hidden, only showed using the

Who needs it, will try to use / or ctrl+f (I have tried many times :-)
).  Who doesn't needs... then nothing :-)

Tonight or tomorrow I will hide it until / or ctrl+f, to see how it
looks, etc.

Anyway I don't know if it will look rare, because in playlistwindow (on
the right) the search fieldtext is always showed. Some days ago I also
tried to do it like Konqueror (showing what user types on bottom of
application, in status-bar...). But I think that is better to have a
fieldtext specially if the user wants to use it often, as it allows to
edit what user is writting. I think with some user who forward and
backwards the song to try to recognize some words as fast as possible
(like listening in school, but with songs, it is funnier :-)  )

If it is not possible to understand above paragraph, tell me and I
explain it better what I want to mean (hurry now)
