This is a different patch from the one in the bug tracker
(implementation looks a little cleaner). Do you have the same qualms
about this one? I think there should be a way of specifying more info
in the search. What's good about this method is that it will only
return what's needed, no more, no less.

I guess what we could really use are examples of it's usage and
potential abuse. At least with this method the server won't be
hit as hard as if the client did the search and requested info for
every single search result.

Maybe we can patch the behaviour later on when the implications are
clearer from real life testing eh?

Heh, it's obviously a highly requested feature by AUR application devs.
I would have written a patch like this myself. :P
