no, please, don't start the beagle vs tracker debate again :-)

But yes, I agree with you. The authors of those search engines should
come up with a common solution for all (without bombing this list if
possible :-). Maybe a generic interface that can easily be replaced or
whatever, but we should have live search available for applications, and
use that in gnome-search-tool, nautilus and any other app that needs it.
