There are many aspects still to be considered. Over the next several days we'll be working hard to get clarity and will update the community as soon as we can.

Regardless, we are certainly committed to continuing to innovate on the user experience of search all across Yahoo! and on continuing to engage with the developer community on several fronts, opening up leading audience experiences and data to third-party innovation. In that context, SearchMonkey can add a lot of value to how we help people get the most out of search and out of Yahoo!. Over the next several months we'll determine what makes sense with our developer offerings and provide information when available."
