Comment(by duncan):

 I think it probably makes more sense to generate hoogle databases of each
 package and upload them individually. Then we can periodically generate a
 unified hoogle database covering some subset of packages, either using a
 specialised client or on the server.

 Most packages don't change most of the time, so a client that's doing this
 regularly should not need to download most packages' hoogle input files /
