;; Commentary:
;; This mode uses the Keywords library header to provide code-finding
;; services by keyword.
;; Things to do:
;; 1. Support multiple keywords per search. This could be extremely hairy;
;; there doesn't seem to be any way to get completing-read to exit on
;; an EOL with no substring pending, which is what we'd want to end the loop.
;; 2. Search by string in synopsis line?
;; 3. Function to check finder-package-info for unknown keywords.
