I thought about something like this as well, but if I am working on that 
I want it more extensible! I would like to incooperate more then one 
search provider. The result would look a wee bit like e.g.

...but if I will add them all to skinconf.xml it will ugly to edit. I 
would like something like searchconf.xml where I can add all providers 
(or even populate them from a db).

Especially the @action is quite nasty e.g.

I would use something like
  <engine id="se1" name="altavista" 
action="" query-parameter="q">
    <what>web</what> <etc/>

This way one get rid of the '&' problematic.


Can you open a feature request bug for that?
