API: listFilters and search commands enhancements


Please could we have one or (preferably) both of the following changes to the API:

1) For each filter returned by the listFilters command include a URL encoded string attribute that represents the filter's search string.

<filter type="builtin" sFilter="ez349" q="AssignedTo%3A%22Me%22+Status%3A%22Active%22">My Cases</filter>

2) Please add an optional sFilter parameter to the search command so that instead of using the q parameter to specify a search string or leaving off the q parameter to get the user's last used filter, we can specify the exact filter to use as obtained from the listFilters command.

Request (1) gives us the ability to see the make up of a filter and potentially alter it's search string should we wish create a new filter, as well as pass it into the search command as the value of the q parameter.

Request (2) allows us to use the search command for a specific saved filter without having to first call the saveFilter command, saving an unnecessary trip to the server.

If we could get request (1) we'd be eternally grateful, request (2) would be the icing on the cake!

Oh, and please could the search string for each filter also include the OrderBy axis as well as the search criteria axis.
