The screencast shows me launching the binary abiword.  At the moment,
you have to explicitly add it in as an "engine", but I could probably
just have a look at what the mini-commander does right now.

A global keybinding would be sweet, but I'm not sure of the best way to
do this right now:

Can't read the attachment, but that might be my mail server (myrealbox)

I can see the sense of the Epiphany design, but I am just wary that if
you throw in bookmarks and addresses on top of all these search engines,
then the drop-down is starting to get pretty full.

Right now, just tarballs.  If people are interested in hacking on it,
then I'm sure that we can set something up.
