Are the 5 instances not listed in find uses all in comments and docs? 
If not, there's a bug.  Find uses only searches through code right now.

The scope of find uses defaults to all files in the project.  I find 
myself nearly always using find uses; I rarely use search in files any 
more except if I want to find text outside of code.  That doesn't mean 
it's the right choice for everyone, though -- the speed advantages 
depend on the size of the project and whether or many projects have code 
in strings and templates.

We do plan on addressing the limitations listed above.
