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.
