Me, too.

I hacked quickly, but this code has any problems, so do not
commit to CVS yet.

(defvar w3m-feeling-lucky-format
  (concat "http://www.google.com/search?btnI=I%%27m+Feeling+Lucky";

(defsubst w3m-canonicalize-url (url &optional feeling-lucky)
  "Add a scheme part to an URL if it has no scheme part."
  (w3m-string-match-url-components url)
   ((match-beginning 1)
    (let* ((cs 'utf-8)
	   (charset "UTF-8")
	   (str (w3m-url-transfer-encode-string url cs)))
      (setq url (format w3m-feeling-lucky-format
			charset charset str))))
    (concat (if (and (file-name-absolute-p url)
		     (file-exists-p url))

(defun w3m-input-url (&optional prompt initial default quick-start)
  "Read a url from the minibuffer, prompting with string PROMPT."
  (let (url)
    (unless default
      (setq default w3m-home-page))
    (unless initial
      (setq initial (w3m-active-region-or-url-at-point)))
    (if (and quick-start
	     (not initial))
      (setq url (let ((minibuffer-setup-hook
		       (append minibuffer-setup-hook '(beginning-of-line)))
		      (ofunc (lookup-key minibuffer-local-completion-map " ")))
		  (define-key minibuffer-local-completion-map " " 'self-insert-command)
		       (or prompt
			   (if default
			       (format "URL (default %s): "
				       (if (stringp default)
					   (if (eq default w3m-home-page)
					       "HOME" default)
					 (prin1-to-string default)))
			     "URL: "))
		       'w3m-url-completion nil nil initial
		    (define-key minibuffer-local-completion-map " " ofunc))))
      (when (string= "" url)
	(setq url default))
      (if (stringp url)
	    ;; remove duplication
	    (setq w3m-input-url-history
		  (cons url (delete url w3m-input-url-history)))
	    (w3m-canonicalize-url url 'feeling-lucky))
	;; It may be `popup'.

Sorry Japanese only...
思ったより簡単に出来ちゃいました :-)


(1) utf-8 がない Emacs だと、なにを使うのが良いかな?
    cs は w3m-default-coding-system で良いと思うのだけど、
    w3m-default-coding-system を charset にする関数が無いので面

(2) w3m-canonicalize-url() は w3m-browse-url() でも使われている
    けど、こっちも feeling lucky に対応させちゃってよいかしら?
