UI enhancement for global/area search toggle

Review Request #107195 - Created Nov. 4, 2012 and submitted

Dennis Nienhüser
Currently there's a checkbox in the Navigation tab with the text "Around" which, when enabled, switches from global search to bounded (search visible map region only) mode. I'd like to make that mode switch more intuitive to users by doing two changes:
- Move the checkbox to the search input field such that it becomes part of the search widget
- Use a radio button like approach instead of a checkbox

The patch implements that using a drop down menu on the search decorator of the search line edit (see screenshots).
Toggle between modes, make sure that a) placeholder text indicates "Global Search" or "Area Search", respectively, and search results are appropriate for the mode in question
