This ticket is to track Gadget integration in sugar.
See http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Gadget and related pages for more information about Gadget.
Gadget offers API  to search:
- buddies by properties
- buddies by alias
- activities by participants
- activities by properties (for example, all the activities of type Write)
Not sure we should offer UI for all type of searches though.
Current mesh view search is basically a filter on already displayed buddies/activities. The big difference here is that searches are performed on the *server* side. So it will return new buddies/activities which stay alive while the search result (called "view") is not closed. While a view is open, new buddies/activities can be added or removed and Gadget will inform us about changes.
