Agreed, for two reasons. The first is that it makes it much easier to
throw an artist name from some other part of Rhythmbox into the search
widget and have it work (we do this from the Ubuntu One music store, for
example, although there we know we'll get it right). The second is that
such lists of stopwords already exist, so they should be easy to
incorporate :-)
