I didn't realize you were the author of KinoSearch, which you are also suggesting as a platform.
intelligent analysis of huge amounts of generic data can beat analysis of specialized data.
Sure, those techniques are powerful... The brute force "did you mean" stratagem is tough to top, no question!
As for whether we'll be able to deliver an overall improvement on the PerlMonks search experience, I guess we'll just have to present something, and people can vote with their clicks.
 Major search engines decide what to suggest based on search history: what most people have typed in after misspelling something. This has proven superior to algorithms based on edit distance.
