It is just more user-friendly. A search dialog usually as a text field to type something into. That said, I am against adding such fields in a system browser because they would occupy too much screen space. :-D So, I am rather indecisive about this matter... :'(

Is the field morph really required? class/method lists in browser don't
use one to filter the displayed list. Just pop up a list morph with all
classes and let the list morph do the filtering like in class/method
panes. The dialog window only needs to intercept enter/escape from the
list morph. choose/cancel buttons may also be dropped.
