Yeah, one example: search that actually works. On
https://forum.kde.org/kexi when I type TABLE I get results for Amarok,
KMail, Okular, even VDG. Maybe 3 for Kexi.

People search, do not browse, especially if they're confronted with a
large hierarchy.

Isn't that an idea for GSoC or whatever action?
