When will I be able to require search terms?

When I want to search for pages that contain both 'foo', 'bar', and the phrase "cool dude", if I type in to the search box << foo bar "cool dude" >>, I get a mix of results, some of which only contain foo, some of which only contain bar, and some of which only contain cool or dude. I tried using the + sign before terms, but that doesn't seem to help.

Search results are roughly organized by how many terms they contain, but how can I require that they contain all terms (and phrases)? Right now I'm stuck doing the ol' Google search until the site search catches up on this one.
