When using the inline search feature, would it be possible to implement something that essentially does the same as scrolling up to the top of the current buffer, in order to download x more lines from the quassel core, in order to search more of the history? IE, if there are no results, it shows a 'More...' button, downloads, say, 500 more messages from the DB, and searches them as well.

It's acutally already implemented. You only have to be lucky enough to trigger it. If a search highlights an item inside the top 20% percent of the view, a backlog fetch is triggered.
Updating of those items is a little buggy in master. If fixed one would only have to connect the "next/prev item" buttons with "request backlog". probably conditionally..
