I am not sure that I can see great merits in this. Why it is 
Google-specific? Is
it linked to from your main page? Your robots.txt does appear to help:

User-agent: *

The request for daily updates of all permanent entries will not be honoured by
SE's. The content is static. Also, why not use a scripts like narchives.php to
list all entries? I went as far as extending mine
(http://www.schestowitz.com/Weblog/narchives.php~) so that it lists the
excerpts, which are otherwise unused outside feeds.
