Search [tag1] OR [tag2]

At the moment, the way we can filter questions by tags allows us to request either the presence of a single tag (like [c++]), or the intersection, i.e. the simultaneous presence of all of several tags (like [c++] [java]). That is, composition is a logical AND.

Would it be possible to also have a logical-OR operator that allows us to select the union of questions that are tagged with any one of a collection of tags, like [c++] || [java]?

This would make it a lot more convenient to keep tabs on all questions that might be of interest.

    @Mat: No, this is no duplicate, as we don't want to search, we just want it displayed. – Xeo Dec 11 '11 at 20:56
  • @Xeo: sorry, I'm completely failing at understanding that. Where do you want to put that or'ed selection? – Mat Dec 11 '11 at 21:00
  • Is this a request for the per-site search, or for the tag filters at stackexchange.com? – Tim Stone Dec 11 '11 at 21:01
  • @Mat: Nvm me, I misunderstood how that pseudo search tag was to be used! :) – Xeo Dec 11 '11 at 21:02

    @Xeo It's functionally the same as searching, though. A tag-only search takes you to the same page as clicking on that tag. – Tim Stone Dec 11 '11 at 21:02
