Thanks for that. I've cleaned up the patch to be sure it works with
0.3, and I've removed all the other things - anyone who is interested
will find it attached.

I think, though, that a better approach might be to have this mode
activated automatically when a textbox gets focus. If one goes to a
search engine whose scripts put your cursor straight in the search box
anyway, then it's stupid to have to press i first before you can type
something in it. I'll try to find the time to see how uzbl does it, as
has been suggested.
