As Victor and Joaquim stated, that is a good idea.

I'd search in all sources, and using the same callback as we have in
browse, that is, sending the Media and the source which the media comes

I wouldn't specify a set of sources, because I don't see really a big
difference creating the list and invoking the method than creating the
list and invoking the search for each source in the list. Thus, I'd go
with the search_all() approach.
