Hoogle does not search the general web, just the libraries supplied
with GHC. A quick scan of the first few Google results shows nothing
particularly obvious - what were you hoping Hoogle found?

Now and then. I think it should be up to date with respect to GHC
6.8.2 at the moment.

Yes, I'm currently working on this as a Summer of Code project.

Hopefully, by the end of the Summer, Hoogle will search all of hackage.
