GUI: Multi-word support for quick search field

We recently got an iTunes-like quick search field in the launcher. Great.

Here's a way how it could be improved some more: Currently, we list all games that contain the search string as a substring. So if I enter "mon ami" it lists nothing for me. I propose that instead we tokenize the entered string (split it at every space; treat multiple spaces as a single on). Then, list all games that contain each of the tokens as a substring. In my example, that might include "Monkey Island (Amiga)".

It should be fairly straightforward to implement this. I was about to do it myself, but then decided that I cannot afford to spend my time on that right now :/.
