Well, the plan is to ship KDE 4 in F8, and the KDE folks are working on 
supporting Strigi in some apps. But I don't know how work is going on the GNOME 
side, that probably also depends on whether Beagle or Tracker will end up as 
the "default" there.

I'm a bit worried about ending up with 2 or 3 different desktop search daemons 
autostarted by different apps. (Heck, personally, I don't even want _one_ 
search daemon autostarted, but users and use cases differ. ;-) )
