I am not opposed to including getSearchTree and friends in the
prelude and eventually removing findall in favor of getAllValues.

However, I would suggest omitting the Suspend case from the
SearchTree type in Bernd's proposal since suspensions are
always handled like a failure and any kind of implementation
that is able to resume a suspended search goal (which is not
possible in the current framework anyway) is likely to require
more information than a simple constant.
