Search for text/words in score lyrics

Is it possible to search for a specific word or text in the score lyrics?

Just curious what you idea of implementing this would be.

Perhaps: Search for any text - goes to that word no matter what kind of text it is. Lyric, Staff text, Tempo, Instrument name. composer...?

or: Specify the type of text with a popup that allows you to specify which type of text to search (each item in the list of text styles would have a check box?

or: perhaps the previous with a checkbox that selects all like the selection filter currently does?

or: add it to the current find function

Where do you start looking? From the current selected spot, the beginning? Do you allow it to go back to the beginning of the score when it reaches the end?

These questions aren't pointed directly at EnricoM, but are some of the questions that need to be answered before deciding how to implement the function.
