In case you missed the logs, I commited googlefs to svn, and fixed it 
to work with Haiku's VFS. It's probably a simple enough (the kernel 
interface, the rest is ugly :P) sample on how to keep R5 source 
compatibility for fs modules.
It's also showing how to use sockets from the kernel. ksocket.h is a 
wrapper that can also be used with userland (testing) and BONE.
The rest of the code is not for the faint hearts, mostly written in a 
rush and never cleaned up.

For those who lived in an alternate universe, 
simply put it's an 8-billion entries queriable bookmark.

For the eyes:

For the impatients:

* svn up && jam an image
* make sure your network is set up (qemu handles DHCP nicely it seems).
* in the terminal, type:
mkdir /google
mount -t googlefs /google

* you can now use the "Search Google" query template in the "Google" 

For sorting handiness you can add this to your mime db:
setmime -add application/x-vnd.Be-bookmark \
                -attribute "GOOGLE:order" -attrName "Google order" \
                -attrType 'LONG' -attrWidth 40 -attrAlignment right \
                -attrViewable 1 -attrEditable 1 -attrExtra 0 

and make a default query template with it sorted.
