This is more of a Perlmonks accessibility question.

I frequently hear more venerable monks chiding younger monks (sometimes quite curtly) about not using Super Search to answer their question before posting in Seekers. Well, when I was a younger monk, I didn't even realize the functionality existed, as it is tucked away and blending in with the corner menus and nowhere near the main "quick search" textbox.

Specifically I'm questioning this design choice. Wouldn't it make more sense to have either a second Super Search textbox next to the Search textbox, or even better, a single textbox with a radio button toggle between Search and Super Search?

It seems it would make sense to make the Super Search more accessible and easier to spot by newbies and casual monks.
Any opinions?
