There is something which might help you:
Try typing while you have the buddy list active. A little search window
should pop up and the first match should be selected.
To cycle through the matches use your mouse scroll-wheel or I think
PageUp and PageDown should also do the trick.
PS: Tagging would be a nice addition, though I don't know, if it could
be implemented in a sensible way to not confuse people to much.
