I think it's ok for searching for functionality - if you start
searching for package names it becomes worse, especially if they
are made up words or contain punctuation.
Your improvement is great and I would love to put it in, but the
implementation is not good as it is right now:
- it's getting worse results if you typo or have different tense
or form of words
- it first fetches all the documents into memory and then filters
on them (which will take longer and longer the more packages we
- the PR is mixed with unrelated deprecation fixes which should
really be done separately (but should definitely be done!)
