Hm, ok, but I guess that leads me to wonder if you *would* use the
search box if it returned more useful results for you.  I mean, probably
hundreds of millions people use Google and find what they're looking for
every day, we should be able to match that in the significantly more
limited domain of a few thousand music songs.

I'm not sure what else to do; clearly we're not going to embed Graphviz
for a directed graph of genres in the list...
