[aur-dev] [PATCH 4/4] rpc: allow multiple args on info query

We seem to have a fundamentally different conception here. What you
call "validate" I consider, simply "sorting". You even called it
sorting in your first paragraph. There is no validation of information
happening at all. Calling this algorithm "validating" lends it a false
sense of gravity. It is no wonder you think so highly of it.

I am merely suggesting that the server sort the results for the RPC
user. This makes things easier and more intuitive for the user. In the
process of querying package info as a whole, you are going to have to
associate query words with a result somewhere down the road; either on
the client or server side. Why not do it on the server and save every
single client the effort?

How bizarre that you conjure up so many evils of explode-ing simple
space characters. Yet you don't even mention how you've changed the
datatype of the "results" field, breaking any code that currently uses
the info RPC.

I wont be responding again. Feel free to get the last word in.
