DuckDuckGo Instant?

So everyone seems to be jumping on the "instant" bandwagon after Google did it, so how about DDG do it? I managed to write a (rather awful) instant DDG in about 10 minutes, but it looked bad and didnt work too well. I'm sure if someone were willing to put some time into it it could work really well.

I'm sure Google put years of research into this!  I was talking to Google 6 to 7 years ago about Google Instant. It's now just come out.

It's actually not that hard to implement on a small scale--hence all the quick copycats. But I don't really find it that useful or in line with the general theme of DDG--so no plans so far.
