#7910: Search form should be a template tag

 The search form rarely changes from theme to theme, so it would be useful
 for theme developers to simply have a template tag get_search() similar to
 get_sidebar(), get_header() and get_footer() for use in themes.

 This will also serve to standardize some of the annoying nuances of
 themes. In this patch, the function to display the form is supplied with a
 filter get_searchform which would allow plugin authors to modify the
 searchform or theme developers to bundle a more integrated search via the
 themes functions.php.
