Updates for new CD search tool

Hey folks,

As promised last night, there's some work to do for changing over to
the new CD search program. Here's a patch for the website directly to
point to that.

Secondly, suggestions / patches welcome for changes to the search
program itself to make it friendlier / more like the rest of the
Debian website. Source for it is at

 the desk so he can get a better aim."          [ seen in ucam.chat ]
