Agreed. It's going to take a bunch of people and a long, long time to build anything comparable. Purely guessing, 18-24 months doesn't sound long enough at all... so it'd be a while away.
Putting a web search box somewhere prominent with an arrow pointing at it would take considerably less time, Yahoo's SE tie ups always made them good money.
