Item2340: METASEARCH - uses some very funky and untested bits of SEARCH, and the documentation is out of date

I note that METASEARCH is implemented using regex - this should be replaced with query impl. Similarly, it uses the _callback method -

there seem to NO unit tests at all for either METASEARCH, nor for _callback frown

apparently,

  1. not specifying a format is supposed to render as 'Results in table' - this isn't so.
  2. if there are no results, title is still rendered - not sure if this was always the case (it is in 1.0, and trunk)
  3. there really should be examples of how to replace each case with query

I finished the deprecation of METASEARCH and META, which had been half-done. I really can't be arsed trying to reverse engineer what it does to create unit tests or proper doc. It's too weird.
