No, you're not barking. Or if you are, so am I. That's the exact same
results I see.

I wonder if the search is not currently looking at package names? A
few quick searches for 'psycopg2', 'docstringargs', 'pytz', and such
shows that a bunch of packages either aren't found at all, or are much
lower in the list than something that references it. Other packages,
like 'clize' and 'docutils', do come up at the top; they have their
own names also in their descriptions.

Looks like it's time to go to the bug tracker.
