On that point, I am most interested in setting it up as a crawler (which ought not to have any privacy implications), and would only secondarily introduce the option of using the indexing proxy for those specifically interested in that.
Using the indexing proxy would certainly at least bias the YaCy index towards pages YaCy users visit, which on the one hand is interesting as a subtle form of collaborative filtering, and on the other hand reveals information about the aggregate browsing habits of YaCy users in general at least.

I'd love to try this.

YaCy is a free distributed search engine, built on principles of peer-to-peer (P2P) networks. All YaCy-peers are equal and no central server exists. It can be run either in a crawling mode or as a local proxy server, indexing web pages visited by the person running YaCy on his or her computer. (Several mechanisms are provided to protect the user's privacy.)

Access to the search functions is

 by a locally running web server which provides a search box to enter search terms, and returns search results in a similar format to other popular search engines.
