Are you thinking of adding search to the new api indirectly - which I

Probably a local problem. I haven't tried search on the stax instance
for a while. If desired, I could restart the server.

The search functionality was conceived before we started pools. Thus,
pools weren't include back then.   I'd like to think that search in
pool would be useful. What about searching across all "my" pools or a
certain pool?
