10.5: How to modify user-created Smart Folders System 10.5
If you are wondering, like I was, about how to modify user-created Smart Folders, here's the trick. Select the Smart Folder to see its results, and then click the Action (gear) icon in the result window's tool bar. From the drop-down menu that appears, select Show Search Criteria.

[robg adds: This option doesn't appear in any menu other than the Action icon -- it took me forever to find it, too, as I usually remove the Action icon from the menu bar. In 10.5, though, I'm forced to keep it present if I want easy edit access to saved searches. I filed this as a bug against 10.5, but I don't know if that will do any good or not.]

Option-clicking a la iLife apps' smart lists doesn't work, eh?

While viewing and saving a Smart Folder, I checked the box "Add to Sidebar". But it doesn't add it to the sidebar.
