hmm, I think I missed that part when I was searching to see if you were  
already working on it (although its different from what I was thinking, it  
could provide a similar experience).
It seems to be going pretty well :)

I like the idea of been able to write extensions for the stuff you want to  
show up in the search (be it websites, folders, etc)
