Engine implementations: add dedicated Exception #1676

Right now, the google engine throws a RuntimeWarning('').

It would be easier to have SearxEngineBlockException (or better name). The same exception could be used in the Yandex engine and some others.

In the same spirit, an SearxEngineParsingException exception would help: it would clearly shows that searx code has detected some change on the website.

It starts to be tricky when:

  • there is a parsing error on some fields and / or results
  • but most of data have been parsed.

Ideally the result of the response function should a second returned value with a list of warning.

Some statistics could be done, for example % of (warnings|errors) for all the requests (percentage by error type).

It would help to detect an engine that needs an update.
