In the interests of completeness I should mention "Tracker":

http://www.gnome.org/~jamiemcc/tracker/
http://live.gnome.org/Tracker

Don't be afraid of the Gnome links :) It claims to be DE agnostic!

The important thing here is the fact that it uses an FDO standard.

Not sure if Strigi also uses this standard:
http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Standards/shared-filemetadata-spec
http://freedesktop.org/wiki/CommonExtendedAttributes

Worth mentioning at any rate although I doubt this is really relevent
here...
