Improve extensibility of Enhanced Search

    Currently the ability to inject new behaviour into XenES_Search_SourceHandler_ElasticSearch::executeSearch() in a standard re0usable way is highly limited.

    There isn't any easy way to inspect & modify the content of the DSL before it is sent to Elastic Search (Xen_Api is annoyingly poor at extensibility). And the functionality of executeSearch is one large block of code rather than discrete functions which can be hooked to introduce new behaviour.

    Judging by the bug reports, it seems that a new version should be coming soon. I'd greatly appreciate if this was addressed in some way.

    It isn't like it would be a massive backwards compatibility change either. Given how much of the XFES add-on is basically an opaque blob w.r.t to extendibility by 3rd party add-ons
