[Mediawiki-l] Categories as search filters for a Refined/Advanced Search Tool

I want to allow users to filter searches of a Mediawiki's content so
that search results that match user-selected categories *and* the
search term would be returned.
For example, along with the standard search box (text field for search
term) a user could be presented with a treed list of all categories
with check boxes by them. Only when a category's check box is checked
by the user for a given "advanced/category-filtered" search would
content in that category be searched. User could select ***as many or
few categories*** as he likes and the search tool would search only
within those categories.
Has anyone seen anything like this implemented for Mediawiki? Or for any
other content management system?
