If you could add something to Kentico, what would it be and why?

Enhanced smartsearch filter, with resultcount per filter

The facetted search should be extended with an option to show the number of results per filter item. (ListControls)

When one of the filter items is clicked, these numbers should change, and if the number of results would be zero, the listitem (eg. checkbox) should be disabled.

Items which return no results at all (at !IsPostback), should be removed at all.

For instance:
Category
[ ] Financial (1)
[ ] Marketing (3)
[ ] Web (1)

Document type
[ ] Download (2)
[ ] News (3)
[ ] Product (4)

When filter changes:

Category
[x] Financial (1)
[ ] Marketing (0)
[ ] Web (0)

Document type
[ ] Download (0)
[ ] News (1)
[ ] Product (2)

Needed settings for the webpart:
- HideControlWhenEmpty (no filters at all)
- HideFilterWhenZero (hide if zero on !IsPostback)
- ShowPlusWhenLargerThen (Show max item with + sign, when larger then setting, for instance (50+))

The index/search settings should be derived from the searchcontrol
