Cached results a la Google cache via wayback machine

The idea is to include somewhere in the DIV of the result a option to a cached link. Just like in google.
Today linuxquestions.org was down and I had to go to google in order to access to the cached page. As google web cache is damn slow, I copied the URL and pasted it on waybackmachine. This service is pretty faster than google's one.

I know there is a bang !cache, but it does not do the job. I do not want to make a search on google's cache, but to access to a cached page which has the same search terms than not cached web pages. And it would be perfect NOT to use google' services at all. So I digged a bit and discover that waybakmachine has its own API.

So it would be great to include in each result the latest cached page on waybckmachine.

Hey, nice idea! I make frequent and heavy use of the Google cache when searching, so this would be a huge help.
