Oh, how many times have I wondered why GPA has no search tool.
There's plenty of unused space to the right of "[bunch of keys] Key
manager".  To say nothing of the (perhaps peculiar) custom of placing
a "Find" operation on Edit menus.  The tabular display can stay where
it is.  Perhaps the search function (when there is one) could scroll
it, or sort all of the current hits to the top of the table widget's

I've been meaning to do something about that but, I'm ashamed to say,
I haven't gotten it done.
