Proposal for "Services_Google"

» Description

I have developed a package which allows easy access to Google's web API.

Using the spell checker and cache is as simple as creating a new object, and calling the method, which will then return either a spelling suggestion, or the requested cached page.

The class supports the Iterator interface, so results can be retrieved by using a foreach loop, as shown below.
foreach($google as $key => $result) {
echo $key."\t".$result->title."\n";

    Modified the code to allow removing the foreach inside the while loop.

    ->numResults() is now supported, and added to the source online.

    Services_Google now implements the iterator interface, allowing you to foreach through the results.

    I think this is working properly, but I don't really have enough experience with iterators to be sure, so if anyone who knows more sees problems, yell :P

    Changed the proposal text to show using the iterator interface, instead of the while loop.

    Tried to move the links to the right place.

    It didn't work, putting them back in the body, I've reported bugs (1909, 1910) for the problems I've been having.
