Well, I don't think we should combine the search in the backend (i.e. 2
methods into 1) as some clients may just want a simple search and not
want the extended search as it may require downloading metadata.
It might be a good idea to default to a "both" search option in the UI
that does a simple search then a detailed search on the same query.
