  Merged[1], thanks.  I made one slight change and that was to use "ch"
instead of "char" for character searches.  The latter returns just
the popular results, while the "ch" parameter is a closer fit to the
results from the other search types showing both popular and partial
matches.  Although how much they vary depends massively on the search
you perform.

  I also added a couple more tests while I had my editor open, please
don't mock my taste in movies :)
