Nevermind: Upon a deeper read of the features lists,
these questions are answered:

  1. They give you access to the raw XML feed, an
     XSLT, or you can use a wizard to tweak the
     deftault Google look and feel.  (No mention of
     a web API.)

  2. Indexing is purely web-based and because Soks/WEBrick
     serves up the textile as HTML, this is an irrelevant
     question.
