Search Code Filter

This is not a feature that I would find very interesting on my own forum, but it would sure be helpful here. It would be nice if there was an option to allow the user to ignore everything written inside code tags when searching. You can hardly look up any question about something in the forum code without seeing a million copies of every single time anyone posted up a code block that incidentally included what you were interested in. I know that there are probably a few copies of everything that aren't in code blocks and that those would still clutter up the search results, but any starting point to help cut through the chaff here would be helpful.

This is a *massive* feature to implement. Complete redesign of how all the search system works. Not going to happen in 2.0 or 2.1.
