Sure, parsing the epiphany bookmarks file over and over again is not a
good solution, but it does the job. Users usually don't care *how*
something appears on their screen as long as it actually does.

Depending on tracker only to retrieve epiphany bookmarks in a more sane
way is not going to happen.

The tracker store may be more useful to deskbar if more applications
would actually use it (e.g. evolution, f-spot, rhythmbox, banshee). But
as I see it, the ideas of tracker may be great, but far to less
applications use it so it could be worthwhile implementing tracker-store

Another problem non of the desktop search engines could solve for me is,
to provide a way to find out how one result/item can be opened. For
deskbar that's a crucial point. It doesn't help at all if I can ask
tracker to search for xyz, but don't know how to handle the results. To
solve this dilemma we currently hard coded the commands to open specific
types of results in the beagle module (don't know about the tracker
module, it isn't officially part of deskbar anyway). I'd love to get rid
of such hacks.

So unless you provide patches/plugins for more applications to fill
tracker-store and even more importantly patches for applications that
consume this data, it's -1 from me.
