I was going to recommend Denis' QuickFinder plugin. 

It doesn't work with zero configuration (as Paolo expects it), but is
quite easy to configure and also flexible.

 Régis, All,

QuickFinder does it like this. Denis is the main author of this plugin.

It can plug to osm, internal layer and GeoMapfish. You can even add more
