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 account, the privacy complaint is a 
little hard to follow.
