You know something about my computer systems that I don't, hmm???

Here, I run FC4, FC5, & FC6.  I also use search engines on the
computers, and am well aware of the concepts of cataloguing work.
Beagle isn't some radically new concept.  Even HTDIG, years old, has
some similar abilities (reading drive contents other than just the
webserver htdocs directory, reading other file formats, databasing the
results in an optimised table, etc.).  Hell, I used to work in a library
where we did this stuff manually.
