In addition to the old-style fulltext search tied to a view, it would be great to be able to fire a qeuery against the whole database, and be able to do it from anywhere (an outline-entry, a hotspot on a document, a "search bar" in a frameset).

When you compose a new mail and want to add people from the Domino Directory, you cannot search for someone "containing" Bruce for instance. The last name has to start with the search term or otherwise you don't get results. 
So searching "Stuart" will find 'Stuart, James' ...
