I think it is awesome:

$ g.extension extension=g.search url=https://github.com/jachym/g.search
$ g.search MLC

    Description: Generates statistics for i.maxlik from raster map.
    Keywords: imagery,classification,supervised classification,Maximum
Likelihood Classification,MLC,signatures

    Description: Classifies the cell spectral reflectances in imagery data.
Classification is based on the spectral signature information generated by
either i.cluster, g.gui.iclass, or i.gensig.
    Keywords: imagery,classification,Maximum Likelihood Classification,MLC

The code is minimalistic, so the duplication with GUI code is minimal or

I suggest to put it to trunk, but to consider the name first. g.search
sounds good but does it search modules or maps or both? Are the maps a
possible extension of the current functionality?
