LAUNCHER: Add "quick search" input field like in iTunes

Today I wanted to launch "Kyra" from the launcher. So I typed "K" and of course, didn't see "Kyra". Ah, I thought, "it will be under 'Legend of Kyrandia'", and typed "L". Of curse, I still didn't see it, because it actually was listed under "The Legend of Kyrandia". The same problem affects many other games, e.g. the Monkey Island series.

I think it would be pretty cool if we could add a "quick search" field, like in itunes: You type "Kyra" into it, and it will then only show items in the list which contain "Kyra" in their description.

The functionality should be trivial to implement, the hardest part probably is to add the search input field, which might break existing themes.

Well, since we are going to break themes within the GSoC 2008 GUI project anyway, maybe we can add it during that (not as part of the GSoC project, I mean, just in parallel).
