 Severity:  normal       |    Keywords:  need-patch     
 some [http://codex.wordpress.org/Include_Tags include tags] like
 '''get_header()''', '''get_footer()''' and '''get_sidebar()''' accept
 ''$name'' parametter to include header-{name}.php,footer-{name}.php and

 but the search form include tag - '''get_search_form()''' - does not
 accept ''$name'' parametter. currently it includes only searchform.php.

 if this function will accept ''$name'' parametter, it would be easier to
 include other type search forms. this thecnic is very useful to sites that
 have several search form formats - for example one in the header, one in
 sidebar and one for footer. or an advense search form with categry select
 and post type select boxes to specific pages.
