[Clipart] Relevancy Ranking

Currently, the search feature frequently returns a lot of items that
appear to be altogether unrelated to the search criteria.  (Some
searches are worse than others.  Try searching for "book", and you can
go through multiple pages of results for each image you find that
actually seems related to the query.)

It has got to be possible to do a better job than this of ranking the
results, so that more relevant ones appear first.  Shouldn't images
with one or more of the search terms in the title rank ahead of ones
that only have it in a description field, for instance?
