Meaning that everything* that uses nepomuk now (fortunately, not much) will 
stop working properly.

Either that, or we will have to keep both systems running in-parallel.

* except the parts Vishesh ports over :)

I would like baloo to be available in 4.x, with no API stability guarantees, 
so that it can mature for 5.x series. I am not sure about pushing it as a 
nepomuk replacement just jet.

Vishesh, how possible would it be to have dolphin (and others) with support 
for both nepomuk and baloo?
