I was wondering about a way to speed up the auto-completion process for cases where the script relies on user's bandwidth speed or an internet connection altogether. So, one of the first things that came to mind, was to reuse the data which was downloaded already.

This can be done with storing the dataset column data inside a hidden cache file somewhere inside gnuastro for fast and easy access of 'astquery' and potentially other programs.

I guess the script can check the cached file's age and decide if the cache should be updated.
