  Description: fast indexing and searching tool for your personal data

Strigi is a program for fast indexing and searching your personal data. It can
gather and index informations from files in the filesystem even if they are
hidden in emails or archives. It comes with a Qt4 GUI and an HTML GUI.
Main features:
* very fast crawling
* very small memory footprint
* no hammering of the system
* pluggable backend, currently clucene and hyperestraier, sqlite3 and xapian    
are in the works
* communication between daemon and search program over an abstract   
interface,  this is currently a simple socket but implementation of dbus is a
possibility. There's a small perl program in the code as an example of how
to query. This is so easy that any KDE app could implement this.
* simple interface for implementing plugins for extracting information. we'll 
try to reuse the kat plugins, although native plugins will have a large   
speed advantage
* calculation of sha1 for every file crawled (allows fast finding of  

This a beagle like ;)
