BitcoinBulletin already did this... he's crawling over a hundred sources. See the widget in the top left: http://www.bitcoinbulletin.com/
edit: search functionality is planned but not here yet

there's a big difference between feeding some API data and building an engine to crawl sites.

Couldn't participating sites keep a bitcoin.xml file in the root directory of their websites or something which would contain a list of all products and current prices? Websites can dynamically update xml files with cron jobs and the directory service/search engine only has to look for this file on all websites in the list.

I like this idea, also. It would be easy for a crawler to find out an xml file.
