I think a GJ article on Beagle is a fantastic idea, and I'll be happy to
help with any information I can.

A State Of The Pooch email is long overdue, and I will try to get to it
later today or tomorrow.  Basically the idea is to push out a 0.3.0
release once the unified indexes work is finished and tested enough in
CVS.  It would also be nice to have some outside metadata indexed
through it, since that will be possible.

I'm still probably a couple of weeks off before the branch can be
landed, however.
