Just to clarify: for the most part, what Beagle is storing in the EA is
the mtime, not the crawl time.
Crawl times (in addition to the usual mtimes) are attached to
directories. These times are used to choose the order in which beagle
re-crawls: never-before-crawled and less-recently-crawled directories
get crawled first.
