Can you still use the [search-region] tag or do you need to create a new 
usertag to incorporate the query results with the results template?

Up to now I've tended to approach it by just replacing [search-region] 
in the template with a query tag (and item-* with sql-* etc.), and then 
controlling the output by passing values through in the query string. 
Any pointers to a more elegant solution would be appreciated.
