On the modules page, it gets harder and harder to find / enable / disable desired modules, the more modules are installed in a Drupal site.
1) Enhancement of themed tables to contain a concept of "rowgroups" perhaps
2) Introduction of a JS library or Drupal specific scripts to quickly search and filter a table

User interface changes
- New search box added to modules page
Original report by Frando
This patch adds vertical tabs to the module admin page, and search too! Awesome, isn't it.
Search is done via AHAH, and a new vertical tab is inserted containing the search result. Searching is fast, because we don't rebuild all caches as on a normal modules page load. The search matches module names and descriptions. The enter key is also bound to the search, makes it even faster.
The patch looks bigger than it is, as it moves a big of code around.
The first patch attached requires bothand , for easier testing or functionality review use vt_modules_search_frh_combined.patch one which includes both depending patches.
