Yes, it can solve some problems pointed out here, and I'll consider that.
*but* it's not a solution to all problems, and RPC calls will be of a great
help in some cases, as it could be very long to fetch all metadata, process
it on the client side and return information about eg. a search by other
fields than name (give me all distributions from this author).

But, definitively, yes, I'll consider that.

Thanks !
