(Is this is the right place for this request for refinement of a core widget?Feel free to move this post.)
Two proposed refinements of the Search Form widget:
(1) Include in the "edit" area a "block title" (as is done with Category List widget)--at present, the search widget DISPLAYS a title but requires changes outside the skin to MODIFY that title.
Use examples: Maybe you think your visitors will know what to do with a box displaying a "search" button beneath it and don't need the title "Search" above it. Maybe you want to save space. Or maybe you want a more informative title, like "Search entire site" on an aggregator blog, or "Search this topic" on a non-aggregator blog.
(2) Include in the "edit" area a way to specify which blogs will be searched.
Use example: Maybe you want your visitor to be able to search your entire site, or a group of related blogs, rather than just the current blog, and you'd like to do this quickly and easily and/or without hacking.
