One idea from Time was particularly appealing for me - to add the
ability of *searching* through all the config options exposed in GUI.
You type in the search window what you want to configure, and the
right configuration tab opens for you.

Question is: does lisp recognize its variables as strings? Is it
possible to (maybe regexp) search through the variables themselves
that are exposed?

But anyway - searching through descriptions would work well enough also.
