	QueryRemoteMatcher(ctx context.Context, records []*claircore.IndexRecord) (map[string][]*claircore.Vulnerability, error)
    RemoteMatcher is an additional interface that a Matcher can implement.

    When called the interface can invoke the remote matcher using an HTTP API to
    fetch new vulnerabilities associated with the given IndexRecords.

    The information retrieved from this interface won't be persisted into the
    claircore database.
