[kepler-dev] Simple Search

Sorry I meant to copy my response to Matthew to the list.  He was using an
old design as a reference.  The current design does away with the text and
concept checkboxes and contains actually five buttons:

Advanced Search

So no I don't recommend that we get rid of the Reset button.  This is
something that came directly out of some simple user testing in which the
users couldn't reset things back to the original "browse" or pre-search view
that Chad mentions.

Currently, the reset button is the only way to reset the search results 
to the pre-search view.  If you do away with that button, you need to 
figure out some other way to get the tree back into the normal view.
