The search function on StackOverflow is great, really, but I was wondering if this would be at all possible:

Suppose I want to search for some string in all the questions that are tagged [php], but the question I have is not in any way front-end oriented, so I don't want questions tagged [css][php] or [php][javascript][jquery] to clutter the result-set. Why not implement a regex like tag filter: [php]singleton[^[javascript][jquery]]: find php tagged questions on the singleton pattern that weren't tagget javascript or jQuery.

If this is a bit too specific, maybe just consider enabling this poor soul to type something like [javascript][^[jquery]] because that jquery tag is making me cry lately... ;-)

Looking forward to what other users of other SE sites think of this idea.
