I will close the "local search engine" debate for my part in a conciliatory
tone.

I guess we all more or less believe that complexity, the ruling
"application" paradigm for websites, is the biggest single obstacle for a
more accessible net.

We should fight for less complex websites, for more simple webpages.

I know very well that most websites having a local search engine have it all
over the place. I am making the point that a link to the homepage or to the
index of "this collection of web resources" is often enough. 

It would make websites less crowded to have the local search engine in one
place and to get to it using some short cut key. I am just pressing the
issue. If you feel that the local search engine is the second item that must
always be part of almost any webpage then go for it. 

Best regards,
