Would it be possible to replace mediawiki's search function with a
google search?  I've seen lots of sites that provide a search feature
by just using google search restricted to their domain (like in the
examples above).  Perhaps the haskellwiki could be modified to do this
by default?  Of course, this assumes we can keep robots from crawling
around where they shouldn't be in the wiki.
