I commented on Gitter, but figured I should repost here:

This is a great idea, but I'm concerned about the archive.json file -- it's very large (500Kb).

We should aim to use a search endpoint that will perform a search through the archive, so that we only have to deal with relevant packages.

I'd like to avoid requesting the entire archive for every API call because it's going to be slow, and we can only assume, that the archive is going to continue to grow.
