Part of the problem is that tellico discards the current results if you
search again. What about making additional searches additive (unless
someone pushes clear), and just popping up the multi-edit dialog with
the unfound items appended to the bottom of the list with a comment,
like so:


    # The following ISBN's were not found:

Then the user could just delete the ISBN's that were found and resubmit
just the missing ones, resubmit the whole set, or whatever. What do you
