I was just concerned that anybody converting from version 1 to 2 will
have a non-working searchbox if they use a previous skin template.
I suppose the conversion script can't really fix the skin templates,
so perhaps it should be documented that this change from name='text'
to name='q' in the search form is necessary.

It could simply read: "Results of search for {search expression}"
Or, if (list=normal): "Results of normal search for {search expression}"
Or, if not (list=normal): "Results of extended [or full] search for {search expression}"
