Yes, the first thing to be done is the graphical UI part... as the
existing one is bloated and not fit for searching / tagging, etc.

Just to emphasize what I wrote before, the search will be delegated to a
backend we aren't maintaining. We may want to have some local backend...
but that'll come after the UI improvements.
