Even better: these days most browsers allow custom searches in one way
or another (and most of them in more than one way).

E.g., try the following if you are a Firefox or Mozilla user...

Create a new bookmark like this:
- Name: Google Search in Python Documentation
- Location: http://www.google.com/search?q=site:docs.python.org+%s
- Keyword: docpy

Now when you type "docpy test" in the address bar you get get the
google search results for the word "test" within the docs.python.org

(A similar feature is included in Opera & Konqueror, and AFAIK in
other browsers too.)
