Re: Shouldn't the fact that beagle doesn't work with both firefox and thunderbird be a release blocker?

And the first thing I would do, had it been installed on Fedora...

Hm... While I can see some usecase for many users and desktop search, I
myself hadn't used desktop search for years (and, it is probably just a
lack of imagination, I cannot imagine what would desktop search be
supposed to do in web browser)... Good and clean directory structure
seems faster to me (although out of question for most people I know)
than search functionality unless batch removing files, for which the
combination of 'rm' and 'find' is the IMHO best solution. Hm... but come
to think of it, I sometimes use integrated search in mc, but usually
when I need to search specific content...

Unless beagle, or rather tracker, works in a way that if I don't
explicitly use it, I don't notice it, I would rather not have it
installed by default.
