Subject: lei q --remote-if-local-missing ?
Date: Mon, 8 Feb 2021 08:49:03 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210208084903.GA25188@dcvr> (raw)

Right now, local and remote externals are searched in parallel
if they're both enabled.  Local requests are thrown into the
work queue first, but's the difference apparent when there's
enough worker processes to start all requests right away.

This still means local results show up first due to a lack of
latency compared to remote externals.

The same effect can be had by running the following commands
in sequence:

	lei q -o MFOLDER foo bar
	lei q -o MFOLDER --remote --no-local --augment foo bar

So I'm wondering if replacing the above two commands with one:

	lei q -o MFOLDER --remote-if-local-missing foo bar

It could be a bit of a pain to implement + test + support,
