The idea looks good.

I think that if it will be implemented, then the xffm should be able to 
work in normal regime if there is no database server available or user 
does want to use the old folder method. It is beacuse the database 
method is good for documents but not for system files. I think that it 
is not useful for development of software aswell. On the screenshot 
http://ozy.student.utwente.nl/projects/dbfs/kdbfs.png the keywords looks 
like folder tree. If the amount of information rasises in the system the 
keywords will get as complex structure as current folder tree has and 
basically less benefit as the old method.
