2 thoughts here:
  - I don't have any problem with the plugin the way you and Slavek have 
described - sounds fine.

  - what I was talking about on irc was having the backend return a list of 
pkg names and maybe provides to the front end so that all the coprs could 
be queried by something else or searched based on the pkgs they include.

So if someone wants to find a copr that has 'glibc' in it - they don't 
have to search each one to find it.
