I agree that it is an easy move that improve the current search experience. :-)

So, yes work in progress... using the code that Arun sent and the code
already available: sets.scm and pull.scm etc..
And how to adapt the lookup to the current fold-packages+regexp-matching.

Do you think `vhash' is better than `hash-table'?

However, I am not clear about how "guix pull" works so how to update
the index. Still trying to figure out. :-)
Well I am not clear about what is cached... I mean my folder
~/.cache/guix is crowdy. ;-)
