Search does not work on non-local files

Search should also be able to handle non-local files using gio instead of stdio functions

remove stdio in seach plugin
This is considered part one which ports the reading and writing of files from stdio to gio. The harder part is to make the search plugin use uris instead of local paths.
Thanks for the patch - it has been committed to trunk.
The search plugins search only in project files which, I think, are always local.
I don't think it's useful to handle non-local files.
The new find in files can search in any GFile - still only in project files though. But you can store them whereever GIO can access them.
