FS#133 - "smart/dynamic" albums tied to search criteria

It would be really cool if we could have psuedo-album views that are actually a pre-specified set of search terms. Each time the album is opened, it would perform that search on the fly, and the user would see the results.

I have to imagine this will be _slow_. Perhaps this could be tied with the "cache search results" and we could periodically re-perform the search, but the normal view would just be a set of search results?

Reason for closing:  Implemented
Additional comments about closing:  There's no generic, "run a pre-set search query" album type, but perhaps when the advanced search system is rewritten, it may become a possibility. (eg "save this search query as an album")

The more I think about it, the more I realize PO needs this feature.

It needs to be combined with a simple "browse keywords" feature. It might also be worth making keywords hierarchical.

Apparently speed isn't a problem, at least not for the generic "keyword" search. r2015 adds support for basic wordclouds, and seamless browse-by-keyword support.
