 Well, I'm not sure you'd want to go that far (at least not before yum
search is near instant). I was thinking more like two cases:

1. yum search foo - output "small" number of results, and if there is
more than that a message of "X of Y more results, use --all-matches to
see them all".
2. yum search --all-matches - output everything.

...this might be better already, but with ranking it'd be much more so
