You're right, it isn't guaranteed that each beagle user uses deskbar as
well, but he has at least the option. Because Deskbar is part of gnome
it should be installed by default in most distros. Therefore, I think it
makes more sense to ship the plugin with beagle because it's useless
without it.

How often you change/release the beagle-live handler is your decision,
of course. Obviously, you have better knownledge when something changes
in beagle that affects the deskbar handler. We on the other hand, come
to know the changes if someone files a bug report.

What we want to achieve is to decrease the amount of time we spend on
fixing bugs in handlers. I know that your time is rare, too, but that's
why I'm asking kindly.

I don't know if it matters, but the tracker folks do maintain their
handler themselves.
