We have this request all the time, and in fact it's on top of my personal 
wishlist, too.
Unfortunately there wasn't enough manpower in the past for major feature 
development in Akregator. 
We plan to port Akregator to Akonadi, which will beside other things provide a 
solution for search folders, which is also a major reason nobody tackled it 
until now (as the implementation would be doomed to be replaced when Akonadi 
is there, anyway). That will hopefully happen for KDE 4.3.

We're trying hard to copete with Liferea on 3.
