I'm reviewing the datetime API; we also discussed the TLS support in GIO
and it's pending a final review.

the tracker and beagle backends dlopen() a client library and they have
to be kept up to date with multiple hacks to dlopen the correct version.
I was wondering if, now that we have GDBus, we could negotiate and/or
use IPC directly - or, if push come to shove - at least use a GIO
extension point mechanism to clean up the code. tracker is also getting
a direct access library to the storage, which would remove the need to
do IPC to get the results.

moving it to GIO would be a good thing; currently, GtkSearchEngine is
private so it wouldn't be necessarily bad to fix it in GTK+ and then
move it in GIO after the Nautilus guys chimed in.
