Just one that I have been wondering for a while, is being able to order
the search results.  So being able to say I would like to see the RSR5
results followed by srfi's, followed by mzscheme, followed by modules
etc etc. 

Most of the time I am not interested in the language packs, but they
always come on the top of the list, and on a large result base you end
up doing a lot of scrolling.

okay, I'll go away now.
