Matt mentioned the KListViewSearchLineWidget which is tied to a KListView and 
not a generic widget.  It doesn't have history, saving, or a default search 
image.  KListViewSearchLineWidget for example would use KSearch and add the 
KListView features.

I am not trying to advocate placement one way or another (let the kdeusability 
team debate that fun one).  Sorry if I am coming off that way.

Many application have quick search, we should try to make them look and behave 
similarly.  Using a common base widget that provides the user with a common 
look and feel is a good thing to do.
