I would love to see the match operator make its way into ActiveSupport. Such an awesome, clean syntax.
What's wrong with not having a database backend at all, configuring the attribute accessors manually and have the create action of the controller show the search result (after possible validations)? I guess re-using the search has its niceities, but how often will it actually get used in an average app?
