There were, I think, a number of people who made announcements of one 
kind or another ("almost completed implementation of new namefinder" 
etc) on talk-de, but nothing final has ever come out, I'll inquire about 
the status and report.

There was also a recent GSoc proposal by someone I think, someone who 
also wanted to do localised search based on current viewport etc.?

Agreed that *good* geocoding is very important, and somewhat of a weak 
spot in OSM at the moment...
