Yes, I meant in kdelibs and kdebase. Changing the KFileMetaInfo API
will have to happen in a branch because of the many implementations in
the other libraries.  The point was that I can work relatively
independently on that in the branch until it think it has stabilized

Eventually, I'd like to have people port the KFilePlugins to Strigi
analyzers that work (mostly) on streams. This will make metadata
extraction faster because the data is loaded only once. But until
KFileMetaInfo has changed and stabilized I dont want to upset the
KFilePlugin implementations in the rest of KDE.
