Default "Exclude already owned" search option?

Just a suggestion for what I'd like to see. I have ALMOST all of GURPS 3e/4e. I'd like to be able to see what I'm missing, without scrolling past all of what I already own.

Not sure if this already exists (I generally search for new, digital, from SJ Games), but it'd be helpful for when I get a hankering to spend money and no new GURPS products are available. :-)
I'm a collector, not a gamer. =)

I, too, would like this, and reckon it would boost takings when there's a sale on W23.

There isn't a search option like that as far as I know, but there is a warning on the product page itself. So when I go to the page for "GURPS Basic Set: Characters and Campaigns" there is a warning at the top of the page "WARNING YOU ALREADY OWN THIS FILE". If I add it to my crate anyway that banner persists and a popup box tells me this also.

That said, it isn't perfect. If I go to "GURPS Basic Set: Campaigns" it won't give me a warning, even though I have the file already in the two book bundle. I suspect this is true of other bundles, but haven't checked.

The other time I've seen it fail is for books that became unavailable for legal reasons and then came back, specifically the "Vorkosigan Saga Sourcebook and Roleplaying Game" and all of the GURPS Traveller products. These both became unavailable for purchase due to license expiration I believe, but returned later under new deals. The Traveller books are the same, but are now listed as Far Future Enterprises instead of Steve Jackson Games.

NB: This is just what I have noticed, I don't know technical details and I do not speak for Steve Jackson Games or the Illuminati.

Edit: On the "Twenty Years of GURPS Bundle" I did a brute force check by opening a new tab for every item listed. The two items that I own digitally did have the warning in their tabs. (I own many other items in that list on paper, but you can't expect W23 to know that.)
