 I seriously believe that there should be an option to choose between
 search on 'any' or 'post'. This could be set from the admin panel.

 In some projects i don't need/want to searh on pages, so i have to
 manually change 'any' for 'post' on wp-includes/query.php:

         if ( !isset($q['post_type']) ) {
                         if ( $this->is_search )
                                 $q['post_type'] = 'any';
                                 $q['post_type'] = 'post';

 I think this can't be hard to implement (an option in the backend, a row
 in wp_options [maybe wp_blogs in case of wpmu] and a modification on the
 code above to ask for that option).

 Please consider implementing this.
