Search plugin for Google Caffeine

I read on Mashable and TechCrunch tonight that Google has released a developer preview of the next version of Google (code name Caffeine).  Wanting to try it out, I did a quick search to see if I could find a search plugin for Firefox.  Finding none, I decided to write one myself.  If you’re using Firefox, you should be able to click here to install my Google Sandbox search plugin.

And yes, I tried to upload my plugin to the Mozilla directory but I keep getting a “Not a valid install package” error.  I don’t have time to trouble shoot this right now.  If anyone can tell me what I’m doing wrong, I would much appreciate it.  I also didn’t have time to figure out Google’s URL to enable auto-completion.  If you happen to know the URL for the auto-complete AJAX request, please let me know in the comments.
