Will google maps (or any maps) ever be thrown in zero-click?

Obviously if I throw in an address like --

555 N. Wilson St.
Chicago, IL 

I am looking for a map of the place. IDK when zero-click will include a map for obvious geo-specific queries. 

I don't want to say "the way google does it". But. Um. Its damn useful to just throw an address into search and get 1-stop map/directions. I really don't want to !bang google everytime.

Thanks.

Absolutely, right now at http://duckduckgo.com/?q=555+N.+Wilson+St.Chicago,+IL You'll see I'm actually detecting that it is an address and making the first link a link to the Google map. It would be trivial for me to replace that with the map embed, but I just haven't spent time thinking about the best UX for that. That is, how big? Should it be in the sidebar instead?

Good idea. I think we can even make this map bigger...usually when you search for an address you're pretty sure you want a map.

Yeah, perhaps just one big map taking up the whole box?

Or... the [webpage of the] place located there.
