Yeah, the backflip.com thing on steroids.

A friend of mine keeps rambling about doing something like what you
suggested. To keep it simpler you could keep it to only searching in each
others bookmarks (which (for netscape at least) could be kept central with
netscape roaming access). "The trust model" would still be a lot of
thought and code though.

So as you say, it's a lot of development to get to work.
