Thanks for the listing some use cases. But I guess I should also have
asked: which of those use cases are ready to be integrated in GNOME now?
(ie, assuming we accept tracker today, which patches can we merge?)

Note that I'm not for/against tracker; I'm just trying to understand
what accepting it in the desktop for 2.30 will change for 2.30. If the
reply is "nothing, it's a chicken-and-egg problem", then I would think
that proposing it as an external dependency first could make more sense.

(and on a general note, I agree with Matthias' mail about finding what
we're trying to achieve)
