sorry, I hit the wrong reply, as I often do...

Makes sense to me, especially since I have a number of needs on these widgets.
To make sure I get some much needed criticism I'll quote the real app

This is a dictionary (hit "search" no matter with what text and you'll
get the results for 'Africa", see other msg). Anyway, you do see what
one gets from a search. A single row in this case is not necessarily a
widget, as an entity may have more than one textual bit that answers
the query (see "Central Africa"). Dive will do pretty much what does
in an inspect, etc.

Namely I need to:
1)  "drop" results from the search, so that you can pick what is
interesting for you and clear the rest
2) "drag and drop" elements of the list to rearrange the order inside
the list (this is where I'll need jQuery)

In practice, when the system is finished it will allow you to
1) search for material,
2) select stuff to "save" from individual searches
3) arrange individual searches in named "directories" inside the history widget
4) save/load/export/import these directories (this will be available
to registered users only)

The system is mainly going to be used by translators, so the set of
"useful stuff" mainly depends on the sort of things they are doing.
This way can build a "knowledge base" and use it when needed.
