that sounds logical, but since beagle is a gnome item
isn't there an existing gnome function that wraps
kqueue into its API to do somekind of fast indexing or
track file changes? Not a programmer sorry, but I seem
to recall something along those lines when I was
reading the descriptions to the ports I had installed
while setting the knobs for my rebuild. I could look
into that more if so desired...

I would tend to concur with that.
