[MediaWiki-l] An "advanced search" page for CirrusSearch?

CirrusSearch has so many wonderful keywords for advanced searching: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:CirrusSearch.

Has anybody created an "advanced" search form (a special page) that uses these wonderful options under the hood, to help less sophisticated users?  That would make a great addition to MediaWiki.  For example:

Enter your search terms:
Limit to category:
Limit to namespace:  (dropdown)
Search page titles only (yes/no):
Approximate matching (on/off):
Search within wikitext source (on/off):
etc...

I looked on mediawiki.org but didn't see anything.

Thanks,
DanB
