Most defiantly, this is probably one of the most irksome 'bugs' even
file types not recognized should get their path name and basic
metadata (creation date etc) indexed imho.

Another agreed, I would have no problem huffing out a filter for some
of the more obscure file  formats (or creating more 'out there'
backends, like perhaps indexing local tv lisings via the tv_grab_us/uk
XML format)
