How to create a module to add a 'general search field' for website users

I want to say at first, openerp and everybody working on it did a great job on the cms part!

Having experimented with it some time I notice that I mis a search field on the home page. You know, a lot of websites have them. You come to a website you can type a word in the field and get a list of all the pages/posts/blogs/forms/... that are relevant to your search.

I am looking in to making a module like that eg web_search or something like that. That is inherited in every (custom) module that wants this functionallity. When inheriting it should be possible to explain to the search module how to search this particular module and it should give a standard return containing something like a title, summary and url.

Does this sound like a good idea? or are there better options to do this.

Thanks in advance for your reply
