Ehm, did you ever tried to launch that? It takes around 2-3 minutes to
start here while the index contains only parts of my home dir. I dunno
what you'd call a scalability problem, but atleast in my world, that is
a scalability problem.

Besides that the Keywords mechanism (the tagging) is not really perfect
for a file manager.

Well, it isn't usable as long as it depends on Linux (or Windows or any
other single-OS solution).
