That seems more like a cute trick than an actually useful feature, in all but the most extraordinary cases. I mean, how hard is it to type "linux" first? Of course I may be biased, since I rarely google for particular kernel versions in the first place, being more interested in languages, compilers, interpreters, libraries, databases and assorted servers. To keep up with everything I need to know about kernel development, I click my LWN bookmark rather than heading to Google! :)
(And what's with the anti-Wordpress dig? It's not something I use, particularly, but it's free/libre/open source, and probably of interest to more people than the gory details of the kernel.)
