The drop down list becomes very hard to use with lots of entries (for
example we have lots of local BLAST databases offered to the user),
and in that situation the search works really well.

So for most cases, the search system is much more user friendly.

You have a special case wanting a blank entry in the list, there may
be a better way to handle that. One idea might be to use a caption
like <DEFAULT> instead of an empty string?
