Some weeks ago I made a simple page to search stuff on *.perl.org. The reason we haven't told anyone or even made a link to the page is that it's Really Ugly. See for example a search for DBI.
The template for the search is in this file, there's also a file with a few lines of extra CSS. Use your perl.org login to access those files. Patches more than welcome!
It's using the XML interface to CPAN Search for the CPAN search results and the Yahoo Search API (via Yahoo::Search). Oh, which reminds me – the search results page needs to mention it's using the yahoo search API.
Did I say that patches are welcome?
