Summary of discussions with Jeff
-id: search via website
-needs to work with OData to support VS and other nuget clients of api/v2 which call via OData
-maybe OK to return multiple results, maybe OK just to return the matcing package, but should definitely return an exact match first. If we allow wildcard package ID searches, those should definitely return multiple results...

Have spelunked the code, and concluded that this feature used to work, but stopped working after 406 was fixed, because colon characters are now escaped.


The root cause of this regression seems to be lack of unit tests of search. My proposed fix strategy is:

-write some unit tests for search
-undo bad fix of 406
-do better fix of 406
