I'm pretty new to this mailing list. But I'm been thinking the same thing.
Talked about it in a previous mail.

I think it's a great idea. When searching by name, i think the rpc should
at least also search by the "replaces" attribute too. Provides would be a
separate query but it could also be the same.
