Just quickly.

It'd be great if search (or filtering, or autocomplete) could be added
to the url alias admin, it'd also be great if it could be in some way
separate from the main drupal search function. We've got a 300mb
database and have drupal search disabled due to the extra db weight, I'd
imagine other medium to large sites do the same thing sometimes, and are
also likely to be the ones with the longest lists...

1. I'm not sure there is a patch for it, but managing URL aliases can  
be a bit of a pain (eg. URL aliases for taxonomy terms -- and  
folksonomies in particular).

2. The watchdog is a really large list of events that is hard to  

Really large lists of items need a search functionality: users, nodes  
and comments have a search functionality, but there is no such thing  
for path aliases or watchdog events.

Hope that helps, but chances are this was rather obvious.  ;-)
