I have recently added URI based search support to the Semantic Web Client 
Library [1]. In addition to dereferencing URIs, the library can now query 
Sindice for RDF documents that mention the URIs. We are preparing a new 
release. Since the Disco browser [2] is implemented on top of the Semantic 
Web Client Library it should be straightforward to extend Disco the way you 
suggest.

Furthermore, the Marbles browser [3] queries Sindice too.
