Yeah, it needs to. Searching is not limited to the Source Editor. The
same search infrastructure should be available to search in other
editors or even in pads (for example, search in an output window).

I don't think so. Like in FireFox, the search text and options should be
global, and shouldn't change when you switch documents.
