Warn when search operators are unknown/misspelled

dfm Pro says:

If a keyword ending in a colon is seen in a search, but not known, it might be nice to offer a warning. As it is misspellings can be tricky to track down. For example, it took me a long time to figure out that case is important in isTagged:false. If there's a colon, odds are the user meant it to be something special--a warning will clue the user in, yet not make anything else break.
