Another idea would be to have some kind of simple search which only
includes the package name and maybe the synopsis. So this could go to
the cache and I would assume that a cold-cache search will also be
faster. And as a nice give away, it doesn't include so much scrolling :)

So something like:
$ guix search --simple numpy
python-numpy                 | Fundamental package for scientific...
python-numpy-documentation   | Documentation for the python-numpy...
python-numpydoc              |
python2-numpy                |
python2-numpy                |
python2-numpy-documentation  |
python2-numpydoc             |

But in general I don't find the search so slow. Sometimes zypper for
example has to refresh the repos and than "guix search" is faster, even
with cold cache...
