app103 - I stand corrected.  If Scroogle becomes a major site, Google will probably request the site cease and desist.  My hunch is they haven't been visited simply because the site hasn't been used by that many people.

The concept of a re-ranking system is good, but unfortunately reality is knocking once again.  Most search engine companies have strict policies on "scraping" their pages.  I suppose if it was just for "personal use" you could get away with it, but if it was used as the basis for a publicly available search site I think Google would step in.

Systems like Scroogle could be considered proxies that simply convey the information on the page through to the end user.  Yes, Scroogle is stripping away the cookies but the content is still being passed through in its entirety.  Since Google's lifeblood involves those ads, they basically ignore it.
