From Wired [blog.wired.com]:

Wikia plans to release the code for Grub under an open source license in the hopes that developers will polish up the tool...

...Wales and Wikia CEO Gil Penchina have said that their goal is to create a search engine equivalent of the LAMP stack that anyone can use, hack and improve upon...

I like the concept, but whether it will have the power to take on the big guns is up for debate.

Unlikely. There seems to be loads of ideas floating around but very little on how they can be implemented.
