Just curious. Why?

Old annoying topic - photo importer. If you still do not have headace.

There is two variants of importer: 
simple - no questions, no chose, no previews. no need of tracker before
import. Still need to extract metadata (still best work for tracker)
advanced - with choice and previews. This can't be based on
gthumb-importer, probably will perform better to base importer on lite
version of solang. (I need support of groups, video and audio). This
need tracker before import and after.

There are use cases without import but with use of dcim grouping:
- moblin (maemo? megoo?) use medialibrary, this will profit from dcim
- other internet tablets and netbooks, do we really wont to import
photos on this kind of devices? For example to send email and so on.

So yes, i need tracker.

I agree that IndexRemovableMedia as it is may be a too rough cut for
your needs, but I don't think it should be possible to just let
applications bypass what the user told Tracker to do :).

We could perhaps have more fine grained configuration here to make a
difference between cameras, mp3 players, usb sticks and such.

If there is option to disable tracker on removable media, i still need
to be sure the data is indexed on camera. For example my program start
and ask: is the data indexed on /media/cam ? if not please do it!
What is other option except to just force indexing?
