Smile Selecting underlying search engine

Thank you for posting this question. Currently, we use both Bing and Yahoo!, however, users are assigned randomly to one or the other. So two questions:

1) What would you think of using Yahoo!?
2) What would you think if we enabled users to select (perhaps via URL parameter) the underlying search engine that they wanted to use?

As for Google, we currently don't have a solution. If we're ever able to get it then we'll certainly plug it in.
