When a user has a bunch of programs installed, or a large number of fonts to choose from, it can be a bit annoying for the user to scroll up and down the list to find what their looking to add or change. In particular, this only seems to affect fonts, and adding applications to the iBar. But there are probably other interactions I've forgotten.
I would like to be able to search though the list of applications the iBar configuration menu gives me, or find that one particular font from my large selection of fonts by just typing the name of it.
I think this should be considered whenever the rewrite of Enlightenment's Configuration is occurring, it isn't necessary to implement it now.
