It would make more sense to expand upon the RPC and use a client which caches. Initially any queries might be slower, but the second time they would be just as fast, without the overhead of downloading _all_ packages..
wtf was i thinking
20k packages, say 100 bytes each -> 2GB of metadata
caching would be a much better idea indeed! and initial queries wouldn't be noticeably slower. writing a few hundred bytes to a filesystem is nothing compared to doing http requests. i guess most is said now, we should just get in touch with the guys who develop our favorite aur frontends.
