Basically the functionality that I want would be a hybrid between metacrawler.com and yahoo.com.

The search logic would work like this:
1. Search results are grabbed from the local directory first.
2. Alternate results are displayed below the local results if few or no results are found in the local directory.
3. The alternate results are found by searching alternate search engines, chosen/configured by myself, not the user.
4. Should have the option of giving weights to each search engine to help determine the relevancy of the results provided.
5. If a site is found at more than one of the selected search engines, relevancy should increase, but no duplicate listings/URLs in the results.
6. Each search result should have a small link to the search engine(s) providing the results. When this link is clicked on, the keyword(s) should be hotlinked to automatically perform the search, similar to the format used at Metacrawler.com.

I think that is about it.
