I like this proposal.  I think we should stick with the "Find"
terminology though, since that's how it's always labelled in
applications (including ephy and devhelp).

I like the set of signals you've defined here, but perhaps the names
could be similar to the C API. For instance, consider:

* found-string
* failed-to-find-string
* counted-matches
