I came to request this exact feature.
Quite frequently I can recall the topic of discussion, but don't know when it occurred. For example:
me: What is the password to foo.com?
If I forget and search for foo.com, my result is:
What is the password to foo.com?
With no option to go to the original conversation. It stands to reason that when searching, you are often trying to find what someone's response was to a specific question and know the topic of the question, but not the response. The current search is completely useless in the vast majority of use cases for me (and many others as well, I would imagine).
