I've just asked about exactly the same option at Wikipedia's Village Pump. Given that for most editors, half or more of the edits will be in article space, having a way of searching through all other spaces in one hit uld be a definite boon. I'd certainly give this proposal a big thumbs up.

It is better to fill a bug per page to get a overview.

The three listed special pages are now have the invert option -> closing because the requested pages are done (but with different bugs, see comments).

If more special pages are needed, please create a new bug/task per special page to allow different developer to work on different special pages. Thanks.
