Yes, that is a nice goal, I have a few ideas.

* I'd like to have a way to reverse the ordering of the results, especially
to get newer issues at the top (I think this should even be the default).

But as you say later, the "oldest first" view is also of interest, so
a classical
ordering combobox could be added

- oldest to newest
- newest to oldest
- etc.

* The filtering hints are great (are they an exhaustive list, is there a full
list somewhere). But to ease their use, maybe they could be made
clickable, and a click on one could append it to the search entry, making
their usage from a "select, copy, change focus, paste, click search" into
"click item(s) from the hint list, click search"... This is not high
priority, but
maybe nice to have UI enhancement.

* the "is:Done" filtering shows some Open issues, is that a bug, or a
misunderstanding on my part about what is "Done"

or to a new branch (maybe you can take ideas from gerrit, not all of
it hopefully ;-))

An indicator (à la Done, Open) could be added to make issues with
patches stand out.

Thanks for the great work BTW
