Based on that I fiddled some more and came up with


I think the login fits in much better, but the search is still looking 
for a home. But also, I think the search needs to lose the options 
lists. a) they take up far too much screen real estate b) they're 
unnecessary. the default search should use smart options, and then if 
people need to refine their search they should be given further options.

Also, maybe those options could be stored in their user profiles. (ie, 
luminosity prefers 10 results per page).
