As I tried to express previously: thats an extremely stupid idea. strigi 
should not interfer while my "svn update" touches 15000 files. it can do that 
when I`m away and do not care about my computer, but it shouldn`t do that 
while I`m sitting in front of the machine and wait for something to finish. 

I`ve tried to talk about this with Jos already and it seems we have 
conflicting goals here. However, from experience with beagle I know that the 
number 1 complain isn`t that it doesn`t find not-yet indexed documents, but 
that it drains system ressources like crazy.
