OK, I'd like to clarify a few things about the latest version:

1. Should ANY remote queries via the API should go through spec_fetcher.rb?

2. Should there be any reason to directly use SourceIndex anymore, or
should it be considered private?

3. Should all this work the same for the on-the-fly servers (quick
index is the right term?) as well as servers with generated

Thanks for your work on this,
