OpenSearch Suggestions support[edit]

This module allows web browsers an auto-suggest functionality in the search box. The module needs to be extremely fast, and provide a simple JSON-formatted output in the form of

["search", ["suggestion1", "suggestion2", ...]]

Since the server might be hit on every user keystroke, the potential server load might be so heavy as to move this feature to separate server(s).
