I know that you've pointed out that the Search page isn't available in the Preview yet, but when it is I would love it to search across all categories.

What I mean is that back in the Zune desktop application when I searched, I immediately was presented with matches from my music collection, video collection, music or video stores, available podcasts, local podcasts, Zune users, etc. and if I clicked on any category I could see all the results from that category.

Similarly, web search with Bing and Google has offered something similar in that we can pivot by vertical categories quickly.

When I search on Photosynth, I'd like to see results for: 
Photosynth users
Photosynths and Panoramas (Titles, Tags, Descriptions)
Comments on synths
Forum discussions (Titles, Users, Full Text)
and then be able to drill into any of those results categories for more.

I must be forgetting some obvious categories. Feel free to add them below.

For the record, the Photosynth team later answered in this discussion:

"Re search: we're actively investigating a real search solution that should include the forums as well as the synths, and the authors."
