Here is a quick patch to the search.module and node.module That allows
for site search to be limited by taxonomy.

Taxonomy limited searches would be available via a URL like:

1) http://my.site.com/search/node/taxonomy/term/1+5+6/my+search+text
2) http://my.site.com/search/node/taxonomy/term/1,5,6/my+search+text

These two searches would return respectivly:
1) nodes matching "my search text" in taxonomies 1 or 5 or 6
2) nodes matching "my search text" in taxonomies 1 and 5 and 6

This functionality will not interfere with the current search syntax
http://my.site.com/search/node/my+search+text. which will continue to
return all nodes that match the text "my search here".

The patches are for Drupal version 4.6.  If the community likes this
functionality, I would like to commit it to CVS
