  I'm really not sure about this one.  The interface with "-search=title
-author=" or "-search=author -title" seems a little convoluted.  I think
"-author=<author> [title...]" is the nice way to do this.

  Tell me I'm wrong about this, if you want.

  Merged.  I also tested it with dtach(the other app I know that sets
TERM=screen) and that doesn't require the extra quoting, so we know
dtach works as a side effect too :)

  I've had a command with options in SURFRAW_screen for a little while
as a quoted string, but we may as well make it work the same as
SURFRAW_text_browser_args for discoverability.

  Merged.  It is javascript it needs, so using it with elinks or the
patched w3m is a possibility for the ardent text mode users among us.

  A quick comment on the patch for future reference: tests shouldn't be
prefixed with "sr", just call the elvi directly.
