once we move to s3 you'll no longer be able to search attachments by their content.  investigations on bug 1160929 indicate this is a largely unused feature so we're safe to remove it.

We haven't practically done this, but we always liked the idea to search for patches that affect l10n, i.e., the option to search for things affecting /locales/en-US/.

Use cases are reviewing patches on localizability problems before they land, or searching for patches with approval requests that slip in string changes.

Though, now with increasing usage of reviewboard, that's probably not a fail-safe path anyway.

Patches belong in version control, not Bugzilla attachments. Comment #4 is not a valid concern long term.
