Default Weighted Launcher Results

This is probably a question for the KDE devs, but does anyone know of any future plans to "weight" the launcher results when searching?
I for one have found the new Application Launcher Menu an improvement from the old in terms of searching, however I found some behavior that could benefit from weighting the results.

Example 1: �When searching for "web", the first result is "Web Shortcuts", instead of "Rekonq". �(perhaps "Chrome" or "Firefox" too?)

Example 2: �When searching for "settings" the last result is "System Settings". �For my installation, "JDK" and "Software Management Settings" show up before the more commonly used "System Settings".

Example 3: �When searching for the word "system", the results in order are "Drivers", "Dolphin", "Partition Manager" and "K3B". �These results almost erroneously show higher than "KInfoCenter", "System Monitor" or "System Settings" which one would expect to get.

So the question is, are there any future plans to weight the search results so that items returned are in order of relevancy?

Lastly, semi-related, more of a bug-type�question.�This is tougher to explain, but in this example, I have "Hydrogen" installed. �I type "fir", backspace, type "hyd", then backspace and search for "hyd" again quickly without letting the menu hide. �It may be a timing issue, but results are very�sporadic and often, the second time, Hydrogen won't list at all. �This may need a full bug report, just want a sanity check from the dev group first.
