It would need to be configurable -- for one thing the Google
URL is not frozen in stone; for another I certainly wouldn't
want the language to be Portugese by default :-) and some
people will want to use a different search engine.

Actually I think it would be more useful to be able to
drag text from gnome-terminal and drop it onto a panel
applet that did a search in the default Web browser...
