It's possible (see quick-and-dirty-attachment, although the first 
typed character doesn't show up in the gop window for some reason).

But if searching is to be done from within Pd, I guess my question is 
how well this would work, regardless of commas.  If a tag is 
"frequency modulation," it won't be found if someone types in 
"Frequency Modulation," or frequency-modulation, or "fm."  Same for sinusoid, sine, sin, sinewave, etc.

Or is there already a regular expression object?
