I've run the test suite and fixed various problems.

I removed altavista, fast and cddb.

Altavista and fast are now just frontends to yahoo search. This is
particularly sad in the case of Altavista, as for a while (pre-google)
it was the best search engine out there.

I removed cddb because "Gracenote made the hard decision to remove the
website search". Bah.

Still with problems:

port - possibly gone for good, I'll mail the site owner

happypenguin - having disk problems, will be back

wayback - needs a rewrite, basically. I've run out of time
for tonight and I'm off to liverpool tomorrow but will do this
in a couple of days when I get back.
