Heh, heh… ;-)  No, I don't think it should have to, but that is what happens in
a KDE desktop on Linux.  KDED4 gets started whenever KDE gets started
and it runs as a daemon all the time and also checks directory and file changes.
But in OS X it would be like feathers on a dog… :-)

See Boudewijn's comments earlier in this thread… :-)  We don't really want
any more daemons, text indexers, etc. than OS X already provides.

And that works fine !!!!!
