Yes. I actually use Madman, not Amarok, which has a somewhat more extensive
metadata set and fancier options in the search, but Amarok also implements
the same general concept.

My thoughts exactly. I don't want to replace the existing search features,
just add a new one.
That said, adding a new search option isn't completely risk-free: it may lead
new users to miss the existence of the advanced search. Personally I rarely
use the advanced search anyway, I tend to filter with the date bar and by
drilling down through categories.
