Try searching for the phrase "query by humming" and see what comes up.
In short, yes, often considered; there are several demos out though
most only work on a small corpus yet, and may not give good
suggestions depending on various factors including how badly you hum!

The Music Information Retrieval bibliography search
<http://www.music-ir.org/research_home.html> can point you to some
work on the topic, though I'm not up enough on it to go ahead and pick
out the good ones for you.
