I know some people just don't like JavaScript, but have you seen Chris Justus' recent dissection (also /.'d)of Google's Suggest application? Even cooler, someone built one around CPAN!

    Thats really pretty damn cool, and much more useful there than in someplace like google. At least in my opinion. The problem of course is that once you click on the actual module name, it just takes you to a search page where you have to click on the module name again just to load the page. Seems a tad silly.
      I've fixed that behavior :)
      It will also bold the usernames next to modules that have been updated recently. (It uses the top 150 list)
