Hi Valent,
  I have to agree with the decision to drop beagle as default.  On my
desktop I have many thousands of files and documents that I would like
beagle to catalog but it was consuming huge amount of system resource
when it was running trying to do this.  At first I didn't know why
things were so sluggish and then 'top' showed beagle consuming
everything.  'beagle' needs to get some intelligent throttling and
perhaps just some bugs fixed before I'll try it again.


Why don't you engage a little of your time and track which files cause
this problem. I also have thousands of files and I don't see any
performance issues using beagle. If you would contribute and get
involved with hunting these bugs you experience than we all would
I'm volunteering my time and my other resources to fixing beagle bugs
- but I just don't experience any since Fedora Core 5 (then there were
plenty of bugs). If you find which files are causing you problems
please mail them to me and I'll report bugs and work with beagle team
to fix them.
