Complex store queries

developing new charms or just exploring the store, one might want to
raise random queries like "which charms use a layer x", "which charms
are subordinate" and some others. Are there any plans to add those,
concerns why this might not be a good idea?

While the store could extend the API to include these, I presume it
would just be an addition to a hardcoded list. Another option would be
for someone to scrape the store to PostgreSQL or a document DB of some
sort that could be searched with rather arbitrary queries (and a few
indexes for the more common ones).

My first reaction is that such a scraper would be frowned upon as it
might not have a way to update its database intelligently and keep
hitting all sorts of rate limits imposed by the store, but I might be
wrong here.

Any thoughts on this?
