Another option would be to drop the search box down into its own panel...I think I like this best. It lets us keep the basic design of the current header and adds only about 40 or so pixels to the height of the header. It also lets us clearly indicate with a persistent label what the search box searches. An options drop down lets us change what parts of the site the search box searches.
The search by user option is a more long term goal as it is functionality that doesn't already exist. But it shows how "extendable" the options drop down could be.
