Well, this is a very specific feature, and I won't 
implement it in the near future (there are many other 
pending features to-be-implemented before). 

If I understood the idea, the goal is to:
- fetch "all" found pages from google (how many?)
- transform them in plain ascii
- merge them all in one signle file

This would require some advanced scripting ; and even if it 
is beyond the scope of an offline browser like httrack, 
this may be feasable using bash-style scripting.
