I plan to try that the next time.  BTW, I just thought: I may want to
check out alternative interfaces to beagle-search.  After all,
fortunately, nobody is forced to interface with beagle through
beagle-search.  That doesn't mean that I don't like beagle-search, but
it has three major deficiencies:

* It sometimes/frequently doesn't show all search results, and yes, I
  want all, even if there are thousands: As said before, often I get
  many hits in emails and these can be easily filtered manually since
  they have file names consisting only of digits.

* The handler for the files (at the moment, it's xdg-open) cannot be
  changed to something else manually.

* It crashes sometimes.
