Quick quick search improvement: add "Year" to the first mode ("Creators, Year & Titles")

Here's something I find myself doing often: typing Author Year in the quicksearch box only to find that the first (and most helpful) mode only searches creators and titles, not years.

Proposal: add "Year" to the fields searched by the first mode of quick search, so that we get "Creators, Year & Titles".

The Author + Year combination is engrained enough in our consciousness to warrant inclusion in that basic mode. Of course we can get at it in the "All Fields" mode but in my experience the search then takes considerably longer; besides it turns up stuff that is irrelevant when you just quickly want to locate a reference (like hits in notes and in PDF file names).
