[pmwiki-users] How to modify the default search?

We set a page text variable 'obsolete' on pages that are obsolete like 
 	(:obsolete: yes:)

and I know that I can search for pages where 'obsolete' is ''not'' set to 
'yes' by entering the following in the search form

 	bla bla bla  $:obsolete=-yes

However, how can I make this behaviour the default when searching for 

In other words, I'd like to let the users only search among non-obsolete 
pages by default, and only if they manually do a search such as

 	bla bla bla $:obsolete=yes

will they search among the obsolete pages.

The clues I've found regarding customized searches primarily relate to 
e.g. excluding pages based on their name ($SearchPatterns).
