    The iPoT mods posted on these forums are entirely new applications all their own...not mods of the existing ones (with the exception of the skins). New features/mods to Safari/Music/iTunes store etc. are currently nonexistent.

    I actually asked BlackWolf (who put together the Extended Preferences.app), and he indicated that the search engines were hard-coded into Safari. Doesn't look like we have much choice.
