"Teaches users bad habits," is my first response. Beagle, like Tracker,
is designed for people who dump everything into the top level of their
home directory, instead of organizing them into meaningful folders. If
you've taken the time to organize yourself, then apps like Beagle and
Tracker seem a large committment of resources just to accomodate people
who won't learn good work habits. ;-)
