10.5: Change the Finder's default Find window

I put this together, based on the one I did for Tiger, before I saw your implementation. Nice bit of scripting. Now, if we can figure out how to have the default show one or more folders as active, have File Name vice Contents active, have saved searches open with the search criteria enabled, and change the window's width, Spotlight might become what the engineers envisioned.

"Spotlight might become what the engineers envisioned."

But due to the way Apple's engineers keep changing how Spotlight, and the Find utility throughout all versions of OS X, works, it's hard to tell whether Apple's engineers have anything particularly in mind at all. Find under OS 10.3.9 was quite good, but I guess Apple decided it was too good for us.

And what was Apple smoking when they replaced Date Modified with Last Opened in 10.5 Spotlight search results and eliminated customizable View Options? Has anyone figured out how to regain that lost functionality without using a third party Spotlight utility?

PS: Thanks for the Smart Folder Targeteer scripts, Laine. Going to give 'em a try later on my wife's eMac; I'm still satisfied running 10.4 on my iMac G5.
