There was a recent discussion on this topic and the decision was to
remove Beagle from the default install because for too many users Beagle
would suck up 100% CPU and leave the machine virtually unusable. See the
archives for details.  Once Beagle matures some more and causes fewer
problems like this having Beagle in the default install can be
reconsidered.
