My apologies to dww before I even say anything... :-)
Would it be difficult, once the search module is back on, to offer somewhere a search box that is pre-set to only search project nodes? I have found in the past that doing an Advanced search for my keyword(s) restricted to "project" nodes (shouldn't that be Project now?) is a surprisingly good way to track down a module. It's a PITA to have to do, though, especially when d.o is slow. Could we have some sort of optional-default-off "project search" block that just has that restriction pre-set? It doesn't need to be fancy, just forward to the normal search system for results.
And while we're on the subject, I'll reiterate my previous point that for 99% of all users, including those with CVS access, something in a person's sandbox does not exist.
