It would be darn spiffy if search results for image pages included thumbnails.
In particular this is relevant for Wikimedia Commons.
On commons it would also be very useful if the Image: namespace was included in
the search by default
The image: namespace actually is in the default search set on Commons. Check your user
preferences if logged in; some accounts may have ended up saved with bad prefs at some
point due to a past bug where the defaults didn't go through properly.
Also, please try to keep separate issues in separate bug reports, so we can track them
I too would really like to see this implemented
Done in r31806.
Testing live on http://test.wikipedia.org/ and http://commons.wikimedia.org/ for a bit before switching all our sites from the LuceneSearch plugin to the MWSearch plugin (which uses MediaWiki's built-in search frontend for more consistency, thus picking up this new change).
