    MIkkel, should I add this to tracker cvs? Or will it go into Deskbar

Well... That's the question! :-D We (deskbar devs) are discussing whether or not to outsource some of the handlers, but we have not reached a conclusion. I'll have a word with the other deskbar devs, and try and reach a conclusion.

However as long as there is no decision I think it would be ok to have it in tracker cvs, just to let users have "easy" access to it.

okay no problem

I assume if you can auto-detect tracker then deskbar could use it automatically for searches without needing a plug-in?

It would be nice if stuff just works (slab is good example which tries to auto-detect and use beagle without any fumbling around)
