Should Quicksearch Search Comments By Default?

Hi Max,

What's best seems to depend on the particular context (total number of bugs,
etc.). What about introducing some configurable flag on global/per
project/per user level which to control the default behavior (ability to see
and override these settings on each search is still nice to have)?
