It is straightforward to extend METASEARCH to search for field values. So straightforward I wonder why it was never done?

In anticipation of there not being a good reason for not doing it, I have extended METASEARCH in the DEVELOP branch to add a new search type, "field", and two new parameters "name" and "value" to support searches for field values e.g.

%METASEARCH{type="field" name="Philosopher" value="(Kant|Hegel)"}%

This allows searches for form values to be written that are not over sensitive to the syntax of meta-data fields in topics (though note that they are still sensitive to the character encoding used in meta-data values)
