Default Peltier fermenter cooling?

I was pondering, and I remembered peltier disks

http://search.ebay.com/search/search...ing&category0=

low power consumption, draws heat from things extremely well! I wouldn't want to glue one to my carboy since it would freeze the beer right there, but if I glued some onto a bigger bucket with water in it and a water pump to circulate the water I think it would work! Just a little pond pump, the power consumption would be low and I could use a thermoswitch if it was too cold...

has anyone done this?

You might want to take a look at these cpu coolers about half way down the page. Heat sink & blower (not a fan) so you can direct the airflow easily. That's what I'm using.
