Overture buys AllTheWeb

According to digi.no, FAST is selling it's very powerful search engine AllTheWeb.com to American Overture. Seeing how Overture recently also bought AltaVista (IMHO inferor to AllTheWeb) and are most famous for selling paid placements in search engine results, I wonder what this will bring. Maybe they are getting ready for Google's IPO? I'll stick with Google for my searching online -- more so now that Overture may start interfering with the ATW & AltaVista search results...
