I'm sure that if there are performance issues with Zeitgeist that the

For example, indeed, by reimplementing them in a more performing
programming language, or maybe even by implementing them as miner
plugins, SPARQL functions or code running in Tracker's processes.

I don't believe that Zeitgeist performing badly will affect Tracker's

putting it in a more performant language wont help as its the
architecture thats suspect

Here is what is zeitgeist is intending to do so far as i see it:

1) Zeitgeist front end<->  dbus<->  Zeitgeist Daemon<->  dbus<->

2) Gnome apps<->  dbus<->  Zeitgeist Daemon<->  dbus<->  Tracker

Right but I think it is a bit premature to blame latency issues on DBus before we know what data is being requested. Also applications can cache some of this information if they have to, or do the querying at *more* appropriate times. Also the user won't mind waiting a fraction of a second for things like this in a user interface, they will mind:

 - 100% cpu
 - not indexing content properly
 - broken software

Etc. I.e. all the things tracker 0.6 was famous for. No one really mentioned the speed as much as the brokenness.
