Patches sent to the list tend to get dropped.  It would be better if you
filed a bug at and attach the patch to it.

You might want to take the same approach as the file system backend and
use extended attributes to mark which files have been indexed.  The
alternative would be to look up every item in the index to determine if
it is up-to-date, but using EAs will be vastly more efficient.

You probably can re-use the code that deals with EAs for the file system
backend.  The relevant code is in beagled/FileAttributes*.cs
