if we're going to do filename and tags, i may as well just use a regular 
indexer directly via e.g. xesam.

the reason Alexander suggested name was in case connecting to nepomuk was 
harder; obviously that was a premature suggestion. =)

there's no point, at least imho, in hiding the power of nepomuk by only 
searching tags and filenames. i should be able to search by any meta data i so 
desire in the file dialog that nepomuk understands.
