I believe this is planned. We have discussed having convenience libs to
make things easier.

what exactly do you need to index? tracker is well on the way to
indexing all local files, emails, rss feeds. Web services are coming
soon too
That's a fair point. I forgot about the GSoC project to bridge web services.

if the indexers you want are useful (to nokia) its quite likely they
will fund development in tracker for them
