RoadMap for next Beagle releases

Yeah I know that there exists those Virtual Folder things. But I meant
something like that but with tagging instead of rather quering from
the beagle-daemon.

What I meant was that tagging files to their specific mime-types makes
it easy to get all files of a specific mime-type. Isn't there some
kind of "limit" on how much results you will recieve when querying the
daemon? If beagle while it index files and finds a file, tags it to
their specific mime-type...

Do you understand what I mean?

Yeah and I know all those stuff you mentioned there was
a misunderstanding here.

Beagle already provides the tools/API for that. Its best if it is
handled by some related project and beagle continues what it does
best, indexing and searching. If you want virtual search folders, try
Robert Love's BeagleFS (a beagle based Fuse FS) - does what you want
and does pretty good. Moreover, its DE independent. If you want DE
dependent solutions, you can use beagle kio-slave in konq to create
virtual folders and I think nautilus file-selector has some kind of
beagle virtual folder support.
