Definitively interested.
I was thinking at something similar....
Why don't directly call google api, parse and get the lat long, convert 
in current projection and render or zoom in?
The widget could ask for a google key parameters...
An the render should include a choiche of Nation, Region, Street, 
number, etc....
in the case in the widget nation is specifyed the widget will not ask 
for it as an input...

Make sense?
