Awesome! This is something that I've been thinking about ever since the first time I watched a progress bar crawl across the screen after choosing to search all source code for a string. 

Of particular value, I think, would be a "front end agnostic" search API, that doesn't know anything about the UI that might present it, can be queried from a workspace, etc. This because there are a lot of ways to present search functionality to users. With a nicely decoupled API, one could wrap it with WebServer and put it online, etc, which could be really lovely for folks looking for documentation.
