Hmm, I'd personally love if I had my own little google codesearch that
could quickly tell me where I already used a specific API call
and how I did it. My emacs doesn't offer me that unfortunately.

I believe indexing code is very very useful. And I am apparently not
the only one, given that there are things like google codesearch or
krugle and all the others.

I'd assume music files are among the most important ones?
