I was looking through one of those "enterprise" IT magazines (where they call
it ICT, or something like that), and it had a comparison of email management
tools. On closer inspection, email management just means better searching and
KMail already has searching, as do most other email tools. The difference is
indexing. My LUG recently had a presentation from Michael Cohen (author of a
forensics tool called pyFlag), on the indexing approach - see
those familiar, it uses a trie structure.
I understand that there is some work on indexing / linking strategies in KDE
(as discussed by Scott Wheeler at aKademy). Does anyone have a useable search
system with Qt/KDE like API? Plugin indexers? Indexing in multiple languages
(does /usr/share/dict/words exist for all the languages we support)?
