evolution :( Personally I find the usability of the Vaults quite well
and it's design o.k. I guess it is a technical detail that causes the
Vaults to be phased out.

If I'd try something more innovative by myself I'd think about
accessing and filtering packages through the Python console itself.
Probably an enhanced standard console enabling SQL commands. Updates of
a local database ( e.g. SQLite ) should be cheap and may be performed
by only one request. Searching, filtering, loading, installing would be
done in a Python+SQL environment.
