Well, for the default Google searchbox the advantage is:

  Ctrl-K <search phrase> ENTER


  grab mouse .. point ... click ... move hand back to keyboard ... type
search phrase, ENTER

I never used any of the secondary search bars.  Unless I can define a
shortcut to access hoogle quickly there's no advantage.

However, regarding the modules list.  I think it should be easy to have
optional javascript functionality to toggle the visibility of the module
tree.  The default visibility could be customized using a cookie.
