It surely is. I wonder how that makes the current Price Comparison sites feel?

Heh! Google indexed the web and now they are slowly replacing it with their own stuff. There's no taming that 1,600 Pound Gorilla. ;)

How long before this gets lumped in with the existing European anti competition case against Google?

I don't know if you've been keeping up with all the latest on this? According to Aaron Wall at SEOBook, Google have now penalized the domain for "numerous nefarious black hat SEO practices."
