One way to do this would be to use a Switch Controller with a Simple
Controller for each option.

Create the switch value using a function that returns 0, 1 or 2 in the
approriate proportions. This could be done with JavaScript or
BeanShell, or you could create a file with the numbers and read them
using CSV Data Set, StringFromFile or CSVRead.

If the search types can use the same Sampler with different
parameters, then create parameter files with an appropriate mix of
parameters and use those to drive the samples.

Contributions are welcome; please provide these via Bugzilla.

Response size logging is not provided for any Sampler type at present.
It should be easy enough to provide this. Please raise a Bugzilla
enhancement request.
