On http://www.google.com/webmasters/dos.html it says in the "DONT" section:
"Send automated queries to Google in an attempt to monitor your site's
ranking." Rereading that I can interpret that as
a) no automatic query at all
b) no automatic query if only for the purpose of site ranking
c) its just a "please don't" thing, not something the license prohibits
I'll mail them and see what they answer.
