Progressively refined search

    I'd like to be able to do a search and then do another search based on that subset, and so on.

    I'd also like an interface that allows me to select multiple categories and then do a search based on them.

    Would be great options, yeah.

    I'd be interested to know why people think this might be a bad idea.

    Exactly!

    This could be achieved without sub-searches:

    when i add a search-term to a plug-in search, just give FEWER results, not more results (which is how it works currently).

    In other words, the current search is an OR search, which is incredibly frustrating, because you don't know which results have ALL of your search terms (if any).

    Please make plugin search an AND search.

    This is plugin territory. A new search API will be included in 3.0.
