It's a really hard task IMHO, difficult to perform in GNOME 2.20
timeframe. Maybe we (jamie) should start to write on an
initial proposal, asking GIMP application developers :-) to review it.
Then we could branch sources and start implement.

no need - I am going to implement external services support soon which
will allow any app to drop a service desktop file in a certain dir to
perform extraction for a list of mime types or an entirely new service
(like web feeds)

these external filters can be ditributed with the client app. EG GIMP
would distribute it and install it in /usr/share/tracker/services.

A little digression about extractors collisions (more then one
extractors for the same format) from Mac OS Tiger review (by John

        In Tiger, file metadata is harvested by a set of metadata
        importer plug-ins, one for each type of file. Tiger ships with
        importer plug-ins for many common file types: JPEG images, text
        files, PDFs, etc. Developers are encouraged to write metadata
        importer plug-ins for their file formats. If there are multiple
        plug-ins for a particular file type (e.g. a generic image
        metadata importer and a JPEG metadata importer), the most
        specific plug-in wins. In other words, only one plug-in gets a
        shot at each file.
