OpenSearch and Google

Hi,
I'm currently looking at the search engine configuration and how to add remote repositories and I was wondering if it's possible to add Google, or Yahoo or any popular search engine into the mix on the OpenSearch list. The packaged example adds openTalk.
So I thought , what about Google then?

My web-api-config-custom.xml


  <!– register the proxy engine –>
            <engine label="Google"  proxy="google">

               <url type="application/rss+xml">
               </url>

               <url type="application/atom+xml">

               </url>

            </engine>


         <proxy>

        <!–  URL of Search Engine proxy –>

          <url>
http://localhost:8080/alfresco/service/search/engine/google/atom?as_q=alfresco
         </url>
         </proxy>



I've obviously misunderstood the documentation on this.
Is it possible to search on Google (or other search engines) as well ? Has anyone done it?

Thanks in advance
Finner
