[RFC] Make koji a complete rpmfind replacement

With the rawhide sync down and packages stuck on various non-mirrored
state I couldn't help noticing the retro rpmfind-ish experience of koji
(go to the web site, select the right package letter, open the package
info page, click on the download link, repeat for deps…)

While I'm sure the yum repo situation will correct itself soon I
couldn't help wondering if koji could not serve the same purpose as
rpmfind for fly-by users (typically users of another distro/release
version that just want to look at how something was done in Fedora X to
provide feedback or adapt)

Right now it only needs:
1. a search field
2. resolving dependency links
3. displaying of rpm metadata 

to provide a full modern rpmfind replacement (internal files are already

Do other people feel that would be a useful thing to add?
