I wholeheartedly agree. Implementing Google search has got to the
easiest way to the end and Google search delivers what many end-users
have come to believe is *the* way to provide results. Rewriting a search
engine would be a colossal waste of resources. I can agree with
supporting the legacy search if it exists as an alternative to those
users who have a strong aversion to Google, though.
There are bigger fish to fry and, as you've pointed out, since
markoresko is using a gmail.com account, the privacy complaint is a
