I can't for the life of me figure out how to dynamically load google maps local search.
This part works just fine.
google.load("maps", "2", {"callback" : drawMap});

This part however in the drawMap() function doesn't work because the map LocalSearch component has not been loaded.
mcon = new google.maps.LocalSearch();
map.addControl(mcon);

I can get it to work just fine if it's static, and I reference this file
http://www.google.com/uds/solutions/localsearch/gmlocalsearch.js

But for my purposes I need it to be loaded later, through the google.load method, and the documentation is just not very helpful when it comes to the maps localsearch.
