    My first post to the mailing list here.  I'm thinking about starting 
development on a module that can create forms that in turn create a URL 
to feed to an existing View.
    A good example would be a classifieds ad setup where the Content 
Type is Advertisement with various fields, and the View is 
Search_Results, referencing those fields as needed.  This module would 
allow an admin to create a form in which he could specify values (via 
checkboxes or dropdown) that, upon completion by a user, are handled in 
Views argument handler.  So, for example, a Price field, would take the 
arguments max_price and min_price to return ads in a users price range.
    As I mentioned, I'm new, so any advice or alternate suggetions are 
very welcome.  

Mostly, I want to know if this is something people want?  Thanks in advance.
