A few days ago while staring at ps and tracker was grinding my hard
drive, it occurred to me, "Wouldn't it be nice if trackerd showed its
status in ps / top?".


Are such hacks really necessary? I mean, you can easily query
trackerd's status via tracker-status and also the D-Bus interface.
Well on systems that support it via prctl or setproctitle, I don't see how
it is a hack? It is *really* nice to look at top and see: trackerd (Indexing).
It isn't like I'm saying we should switch tracker to lucene and I'm even
offering to do the coding. If you are dead set against it please say so
again. I'd rather work on a project that accepts small contributions.

Sorry, I didn't want to discourage you, on the contrary. Helping hands
are always welcome!
I was just wondering about the usefulness of this patch, now that we
have something like tracker-applet.
Let's wait what jamie has to say. In the end he decides if this patch
will be accepted or not.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
