Here's another idea I've had for a long while. What if we could use the 
search box for more than just searching?

For instance searching for say 'NewPage' would return a list of all pages 
containing NewPage, but it addition contain a link that let's you create 

Btw, will searching for 'NewPage' always list a page called 'NewPage' even 
if that page doesn't contain the text "NewPage"?

If 'NewPage' is always listed, the search box can be used to go to a page 
with a name that you just enter.

In addition, we could perhaps add a separate button corresponding to 
Google's "I feel lucky". That way going "searching" for "ExistingPage" and 
hitting "I feel lucky" will be a convenient way to go to a page whose name 
you have written.
