I think it is possible to do, if you define your own custom rewrite
rules to convert your form of the URL to result in the same query
variables that WP uses for its form of the search URL.
http://codex.wordpress.org/Query_Overview - to understand how WP
converts URLs into pages of posts - this will also point you to
sections of the WP code, in which you can find the default rewrite rules
http://codex.wordpress.org/Custom_Queries - has examples of how to use
rewrite rules and query variables in plugins
(And of course, anything you can do in a plugin can be done in the
functions.php file of a theme, too.)
