Yes, something like that. I'll probably try to implement that after this
year's release, concentrating on fixing the urgent problems (kpse breakage on
Solaris & Mac, default programs...) and we can discuss the details at this
moment. I'd very much like to make an option that searches in the descriptions
too, like searching on ctan, but localy it could be faster and more convenient.
