I'm not clear what you want to do.  Do you want to limit your searches
to specific areas?

If so there's the "select_by_meta" option that will do that.

If that won't work for you then just search for "select_by_meta" in the
source and you can see where that's added into the query string.

$q is the query object ($q->param('my_control') would get the form
element "my_control", for example).
