What would really help with standard search bars/dialogs/whatever
is some interface that widgets could implement to indicate they
can be text-searched, maybe GtkTextSearchable.  This could be
implemented by GtkTextView, GtkSourceView, GtkMozEmbed, and any
other text display widgets people feel like making.

Otherwise you have to hook all sorts of boilerplate crap up to
get a stock widget to work exactly the way it's supposed to.
Surely we'd all just want to do

entry = gtk_find_entry_bar_new (GTK_TEXT_SEARCHABLE (myview));

rather than whatever crap we'd have to do otherwise.
