This sounds like something that could be built on top of
Google's SOAP Search API [1] but Google is no longer issuing
new API keys because (?) they now have an AJAX Search API.
(But even if they were still issuing API keys, I would not have
the time to build such an application, and the number of queries
would be limited to 1,000 per day.)
