That looks like a fabulous tool, actually.  I've wanted that
functionality for years.  But it's not quite what I want.

We get orders for services via PDF.  We need to keep them, and call
them up months or years later.  We'd need to find things like "all of
the PDFs for Customer X" or "all of the PDFs for circuit ID
such-and-such."  Surely other people have had this problem, for
generic documents/files if not PDFs in particular...
