 The plugin search from within WordPress is bad to the point of being
 mostly useless.

 Try to find this plugin:

 Good luck. I gave up after scanning 15 pages of results.

 Try searching authors for "jaquith" no luck. You need to know my exact
 WP.org username to get any results.

 The search needs to weigh the title of the plugin heavily. It needs to
 join multiple search terms with an AND, not an OR.  And the search results
 need to be ordered more sanely. It's frustrating that you can know the
 name of a plugin, enter it verbatim, and still never find it.
