No, sorry for being vague. I am talking about using the more
sophisticated search mode that we use by default (i.e. for "Name,
Description") and that we call "keyword search" -- not to confuse with
searching for keywords only -- in the source code. One of the ideas of
that search mode is that users can type "command line calendar" to
search for packages containing all three keywords (as substrings).

Using that advanced search for a "keywords only" search probably
requires some code refactoring, though.
