 Recollrunner 0.1

This is a simple, down-and-dirty, recoll plugin
fro krunner for those of us still resisting the
use of Nepomuk because of its resource usage.

Recoll\\\\\\\'s indexing runs nicely, niced to 19,
unnoticed, in the background.
Hopefully, someday soon, all of KDE\\\\\\\'s
background processes will do the same!


Configuration -- recoll\\\\\\\'s CLI options for
interpreting and query
Query language (default)
And (all words)
Or (any word)
File names only.

Direct call to Xapian database borrowing code from
recoll sources.
This would give quicker response than forking the
CLI and enable relevance scoring options.

Filtering and restricting hits (there can be a lot
of them).

Note that such configuration options would be more
useful if immediately changeable with refresh of
main view rather than from krunner\\\\\\\'s

Comments and suggestions welcome.

You need at least KDE 4.2
