Something I'd love to see in Wing: contextual search.

Often I'll want to search for Term A but only when it's within the same line or n lines of Term B. Sort of like a "close to" operator. 

Our main codebase is nearing 300k lines of Python, and keeping track of where everything is has become challenging. But sometimes a "Search in Files" returns way too many hits. A contextual search would go a long way in helping.
