Would it be possible to improve the "wiki text search" facility by adding an option to search by namespace? When searching for phrases such as "July 3", at least 10% of the 1000 pages selected tend to be non-mainspace, for example. Bencherlite 08:37, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

I know that feature exists, but If I'm looking for all the particular instances of phrase in article space, for instance, wouldn't it be easier to specify that I want only article space instances to start with? Otherwise I hit the 1,000 limit with irrelevant namespaces. E.g. I search for "March 3" and after filtering only 824 - not far off 20% - of the hits are in article space.
