This is something that may be worth it. I like the way it sounds. I wonder if Apple will try to implement these features into Spotlight with Leopard.

I wonder if Apple will try to implement these features into Spotlight with Leopard.Not hoping anything negative towards CTM, but FoxTrot may turn out to be an ephemeral product that's eventually superseded by future Spotlight development (e.g. more pervasively integrated with OS X than a third party product of this kind will ever be). Already, Spotlight's near-real-time indexing seems superior to FoxTrot's scheduled indexing (which doesn't scale as well).
