A workaround could be to use namespace prefixes, e.g. if you want to search the image namespace use:
image:query, or if you want to search everything use all:query. 

On other hand, I agree that the search user interface should be reworked to be more friendly.

Commons now uses MWSearch which does show the namespace options. WONTFIX the LuceneSearch extension as it is about to be deprecated.
