No we can't do that, sorry. The type selector is only an extension. The
primary way of specifying what content or source to search in is to specify
it in the query attributes.
The reason for this is that content and source are not really fields, and
some engines treat them very differently, making it hard to do boolean ops
on them. In most cases ORing is easy because they can just search the
individual content/sources and merge the results, but ANDing (and full
boolean ops) require more work, that should be optional to support.
