We've talked about this but there's no bug for it, so here we go: A search form at the top and bottom of the results. The actual query should be pre-filled with the current search term. This should be fairly thin, we don't want to take too much space from the results. But using the sidebar search box is unintuitive and doesn't match user experience on other sites.

Whiteboard: [good first bug]
Since there are only 10 results/page, and we don't have a setting to change that, I'm wondering if the top and bottom locations are both necessary--especially since the bottom already has the "Ask a New Question" call-to-action. I'm going to do it with just the refine form at the top, and we'll see how it looks. If that's no good, we can add it to the bottom as well.
+1 from me.
Created attachment 413384 [details] [diff] [review] add the form, tweak some CSS This implements the form at the top (comment 1). I also touched up some CSS in the area to compress some empty space.

r56506. Unblocking bug 501880 : to maintain the advanced search options when using this form to refine the search, you might need to conditionally add more hidden inputs.
