Google Shows Debug Parameters

Someone at DigitalPoint forum has found a mysterious data dump in the Google cache of a page. You can see a lot of interesting parameters and values about the processing time, latency, number of queries, supplemental results. We can think at the server-side Google like a command-line utility that has adjustable parameters (resolve unreachable server, use the new anti-spam algorithm, don't use the new PageRank called IndyRank). Google has a debugging version of the client interface that probably came up by accident:
