Sometimes the wikipedia servers do a full-text search, and sometimes that is sent to google or yahoo via a pre-filled in 
box, but it is an either or situation. I would personally prefer google all the time. Would it be possible to have the google 
and yahoo boxes on the results page regardless of whether the wikipedia servers are handling the full text searches at 
that time? Or possibly have a preference to not have them do it, to save server work?

Easier to directly use google:
