I always have wished that for any search results I could jump to the
referred menu.
This is one of the features that I hope we can extend nconfig with one day.

Note: In my head menuconfig is soon to be replaced by nconfig.
      "make menuconfig" will thus fire up nconfig and not the
      lxdialog version.
      But it will take a few months before we are that far.

Sounds right and is simple to implement.
I may take a look at that soon.
