IMHO this should evolve into a "larger task" demographics plugin:  

merging patient records,
demographic details,
setting family relations,

This is the preferred way for day-to-day patient search. And it
is not inactive, either. Try hitting enter after typing
something :-)   The meaning of that field is "always show
activated patient and allow selection thereof".  The icon can
stay, IMHO, to mean "show demographic details for the active
patient" (which would switch to 1/ ...)  That is also why I at
some point suggested changing to a magnifying glass (go to
details) from the current binoculars (go search far and wide)
but got voted down by Richard ;-)

hehe, sure of that ?   :-)
Has stealthily been replaced quite a while ago. But your
design and implementation provided valuable insight.

NIMHO for the reasons above.

All this is *my* take on things, of course.
