suck on my sizzling search engine!

[ #5581 ]
I spent several hours on Saturday evening hacking away on GTK-Heron, a gtk interface to my search engine.

I made a couple of small mods to the indexer and lookup modules so that extra meta-data like size and date.

Then I totally rewrote a load of the perl-gtk code wrapped around the lookup module. I totally forgot how easy it is to do GTK stuff.

Now it has a cool table populated with score, title, size while the other info appears in the info frame.

For my next trick I want to add support for multiple indexes, including remote ones which it will download - possibly with google api goodness.

Then I'll add cached results with a funky dropdown to select them.
