Searching the Directory: Client Usage & Birthdays

Title
Add birthday/zodiac searches to the directory
Short Description
Add capacity to search by year, month, day, or zodiac sign to the directory.
Benefits
It would be nifty to be able to find all the Capricorns or Scorpios in LJ-land, or find everyone born on a certain day or year or month. It could also expand to a page that lists everyonw that shares your birthday. Why not?
Problems
None foreseen as people do not have to declare birthdays at all.
Suggestions for Implementation
Add functionality so that if you do not want to explicitly declare your birthday, you can instead just declare your sign if you wish. Then just add the search types. I would prefer to see it done so that only one field needs to be specified, thus giving maximum functionality.
Caveats
The original idea for this was something I read today in one of my friend's journals, I just expanded on it.

Title
Change "Client Used" option
Short Description
Instead of providing a text box, make it a drop down box with the names of the clients currently being used, such as Web, LoserJabber, Windows Client, etc.
Benefits
Easier to understand and easier to use -- more chance of getting the correct results returned.
Problems
Can't think of any.
