Why stop at collections when we can search the entire curoverse using regex?

Currently the search box is a "LIKE" query, so foo%baz will find foobarbaz site-wide.

It seems like it would be easy to add a ~ operator to the filters API, and use that for workbench search. Performance could be worse than LIKE for equivalent queries. Is there any other reason not to?

Either way it's probably a good idea to check up on our table indexing situation.
