Well, my initial thought was that and text following the first space in the jump
would be used as the query, but obviously this would break current
configurations. I do like option a, prompting for input if a "%s" is found in
the jump URL. What do you think? I think it would be a useful addition, as a lot
of what we do with the web is search.
