The Modules

First about the modules. So we have these modules, they all share a
common API. This API includes functions to:

- Index content
- Get directories
- Know if a file or directory should be ignored

actually this is wrong - only index content should be in the module and
only the indexe rneeds to access it

a desktop file should specify what directories and/or regex for files to
be indexed/ignored 

that way only the desktop file is shared

I imagine with xesam in the future some standard will be created for
specifying how to index content and its likely to use desktop files too
