store more informations than only the metadata of the all packages, you
don't wanna give all the informations about users accounts by example...

And, I don't understand how it can be perform with always updated
informations like ones on the pypi website, your database is always updated,
than it's not possible to have a completely updated one...

Search might not by the big deal if the data and a good cache interface is
implemented, the number of parallel connexion is something else...

This would also make searches in PyPI a lot faster... not only
