What you propose is KDE->Strigi->Strigi backends.
I propose KDE->Strigi KDE plugin->Strigi backends.
This way if using Strigi is not feasible, we can replace it with plugin
for direct reading or plugin for superduper filesystem. More flexibility :)

BTW. Thanks for putting Strigi presentation for Akademy on the web :)
You were the first person who did this, other talkers keep them secret ;)
