You're right regexp's could get very... time consuming ;)

Yes, boolean logic wouldn't be to hard to implement... someone just has to code it's support.

Hmmm MoGlo must parse the search results after it gets them to get it on such a fine tuned level.... It would be a lot nicer if it was incorporated in the protocol though so clients would filter the results before they were sent back. (less load on the network that way)
