I don't know how hard this would be to, but what I'd love is a search
bar where, I could enter queries such as: "from:
darrick.wong at oracle.com", or and then be able to search the results by
a column, such as date.

Right now what I do when I need advanced search capabilities is I have
a bundle which I've named "all" which contains all patches that are in
"action required state", and I download the 5 megabyte mbox file, and
then search it using mutt.  While that does work, and I don't download
a new version of that 5 meg mbox file all _that_ often, I do sometimes
wonder if it's the nicest things in the world to do to
patchwork.ozlabs.org.  OTOH, there have been any angry patchwork
maintainers coming after me, so I'm guessing it's not _that_ abusive.
