Shouldn't CRUD be CRUDS?

With most models, almost always I find myself writing Search/Find
actions. When I view a Listing of a model, I want to look at another
record or set of records. How nice it would be if I can do a
query-by-example while viewing a Listing, or during Show/Edit/Create.
Would be nice if Search becomes another act in the scaffolding magic.

This wish has been expressed here before. Since then, has there been
progress to grant the wish?

Ah, the convenience of riding first-class on a rails trip!

Search is simply a retrieve with parameters.

The Scaffolding Extensions Plugin [1] implements a generic search
feature. The hosting server is currently being moved, but I can email
the tar.gz file containing the plugin if you need it.
