Nested search

I’m wondering if it is feasible to couch a search within another search. Certainly, one way to do this is to use intersect of new-search-criteria with old-search-criteria. This can begin to get complex if new-search-criteria and/or old-search-criteria are themselves long and intricate. It would be simpler (from a user perspective) if we could nest a search within a search.

Here is a simple example:

  • Not done and flagged @search(not @done intersect @flag)

could be replaced by:

  • Not done @search(not @done)
    • Flagged @search(@flag)

In the second situation, Flagged would show up as a fold-out from Not done in the Sidebar.

Have others run into use-cases for something like this?
