KDE Search Widget

I noticed that a number of KDE applications have begun to sprout simple search 
capability within the main window/toolbar.  For example Konq, KMail, 
KAddressBook and others.  It might be handy to make a common KDE search 
widget so that this simple search will look consistant across the desktop.  
Before embarking on making one or enhancing one I figured it would be wise to 
solicit suggestions for code already in cvs that would be perfect for this. 

>From looking in kdelibs I see KListViewSearchLine and KIconViewSearchLine 
which look like helper functions for ListView and IconView and really should 
probably inherit from a common basic search widget (with the pretty search 
graphic, list saving/restoring, and clear).
