select exact number widget?

Has anyone seen effective UI widgets for selecting an exact number of
choices greater than 1? Radio buttons do this for 1, but it seems we have
no standard for "Select two and only two choices."

writeboard.com does this for comparing two versions of a document you'd
like to compare. They use check boxes, and if a third choice is made the
UI unselects the other two.

Conceptually, an option I'm considering is like selecting two apples from
a pile of apples at the market, as you select them they are moved away
from the group.

"Browse engine" vs. Search engine?

Keyword search is lousy when you're exploring an entire category.
Faceted navigation is pretty nice -- when it exists for the data
you're interested in. Finding items when you need to express a few
different requirements at the same time is... well, a disaster. We
need better tools for browsing and comparing.

Can anyone point to examples of sites or applications that you feel
do a good job at supporting this type of behavior? Got any thoughts
on what would characterize a search/browse engine of this sort?
