It would be relay great if this feature would be implemented. I vote for 
it to implement it as soon as possible. So a user could simply search 
after multiple categories.

hm, what would be the benefit/usecase  of this method, compared to 
wildcards?  The only thing I see is that it isn't possible to exclude 

what would be the best way implementing a category search field

In the case of wildcards it would be straight forward. Presenting a form 
filed, process the filed value to a csv and put it via pv in the pagelist

any suggestions?
