Yes, when we update it.

Oh, really?

I would hope that ‘guix search’ and ‘guix package --list-available’ are
easier than anything else, and that people value the idea of doing
things locally.  Also, a local search gives the right result while a
remote service might give results for a different Guix revision.

Is there any specific reason why you were uncomfortable with these
commands?  I’m curious how we could improve the user experience here.
