Except that Baloo isn't just a library. It provides a daemon, and a
CLI search interface. I also know a few people running Baloo on

This whole "frameworks-baloo" vs "baloo" seems more pedantic than
anything else. Specially considering the amount of overhead this is
actively causing. I just have a crash report from 2 hours ago filed to
Baloo (not Baloo-frameworks). Bug reports against previous versions of
Baloo won't automatically go to this new "baloo-frameworks". And I
have over 130+ new bug emails, which aren't relevant.

I'm all for consistency, but not when it has a real cost.
