D-bus enabled query mechanism

Registered by Kevin Kubasik on 2007-03-26

Enable searches against beagle through a dbus interface, if at all possible, allow the input of indexables through this interface as well. (A full implementation of the BeagleClient API would be ideal)

There is a project for a standart for this on freedesktop: http://wiki.freedesktop.org/wiki/XesamAbout The timeline is fitting Googles SoC pretty well. Some discussions are happening on starting to implement it are here: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xdg/2007-February/thread.html

Joe said he'd love to see this implemented initially as an external adapter which basically translated Wasabi stuff into Beagle calls and vice versa (in C#). That way we can see how suitable the spec is in terms of user experience, and it'll give us an idea if D-Bus is suitable for this type of use. (Two years ago when we were last using D-Bus, it wasn't.)
