Well, the QuickSearch is by far the most newbie-friendly feature in all of
Bugzilla, and the Search page is by far the most intimidating.  If the
Quicksearch doesn't work for newbies, they're just going to think Bugzilla
sucks.  If I'm lucky they'll fill out a bug telling me how my Bugzilla
search sucks.  If I'm unlucky they'll send an email to my boss, telling HIM
how my Bugzilla search sucks....
