Gilles, I am not sure: 
- if I understand Josef correctly, he says that the patch is not needed.
- However, I think that an "AND NOT" is be helpful
  when combining several blocks of searches. 
  (Josef, Gerhard: I think this can be different from ``"and" and "not equal"'')
Concrete example for a search:
 Album Name Contains   Test
 As well as                           
 [ Tag Equals    testtag                ]
 [  Or                                  ]
 [  Image Date    after   03/08/2005    ]
where the [ ...] indicates grouping.
In this case replacing "As well as" by "And not" would give a different
query, which is otherwise not (easily) obtainable.
((Well, there is one small problem: the "As well as" cannot be changed 
by double clicking, in contrast to the "Or"))

So from my point of view the patch does add additional
(but of course I could be screwed in the logic here ;-)
