Drupal could do this in a VERY interesting way drupal site-to-drupal
site. I've begun spec'ing bits of this and know of at least 2 groups
with funding to put towards this.
* Search on local site by default
* In a sidebar, do an XML-RPC request with results returned from
remote domains via AJAX
* Could cache remote results and/or push local results to remote
(shared index) and/or track relevancy (which ones do people click on?)
* Final interesting piece: retrieve remote nodes that matches search
via publish-susbcribe and store locally as first-class content --
"matching" content naturally moves through a series of inter-
connected websites depending on where/when people search for that
Just an implementation away from reality :P
