We can go a few directions:

Easy & python.org styled
* google's JS search API to get, parse and display results. $5 per 1K
* bing's JS search API. 5$ per 2.5K queries.

Easy but external
* textbox links to a google/bing search with site:pypi.python.org

Hard to get good results, but perhaps easy to try:
* Change/improve internal search engine, and invent a good ranking

Though I wouldn't say this is high priority at all. I personally never use
pypi search, just site:pypi.python.org on google.
