[Thunar-dev] Writing a "Semantic" plugin for Thunar

I would like the ability to tag arbitrary files with keywords, and to
browse the filesystem by keywords rather than directories.

An extension for tagging files seems straightforward to write. (Before
I embark on this, is anyone else working on a similar project?)

However, from reading the section on Thunar extensions, it looks like
there is no way to implement a keyword browsing interface from within
Thunar. That would still require a separate application. Am I correct
in assuming that?
