Can anyone point me to where the plugin searchbox is code.  I've looked
very hard through all the code at 
but I can't see anywhere there that it creates the search box.

It's frustrating that Github doesn't appear to have a 'search this
directory tree' function.

Presumably the pluginrepo plugin uses something pretty similar to
tpl_searchform but adds on the '@plugins' to the search terms somehow,
I'm just desparate to find out how it does that.
