Bug Description

Currently, choosing a specific lense to search is not very keyboard friendly.
It would be nice if the unity would support quick lens selection by typing in a prefix keyword before the search term.


  a banshee -> Application lens: search banshee
  w Ubuntu -> Wikipedia lense: search Ubuntu
  py logging -> Python documentation lense: search logging

@Marcus; this is something we are considering for a future release of Ubuntu, however this change will come as part of a larger package of changes, so leaving the bug status as it is for the moment.
