I recall that the original plan for indexing was to use Medusa, but it
never progressed far enough to be reliable.  I'm trying to get it ready
for a GNOME 2.6 release.  When it is ready, you might want to re
consider it.  As it uses DB1, I feel that Evo should wait until a better
indexing/filesystem service is available.  Seth Nickell and Rodrigo Moya
have suggested Medusa switch to a real SQL-based engine, and at that
time, it would be a suitable candidate indexing Evo's data.
