That makes sense - providing that it isn't a KDE-specific thing. I'd have expected it to be more on the lines of something freedesktop.org would provide. We'd also need a good CLI application to match.
However, I still think that metadata belongs *in* the files, not in a database. So if I move/copy a file, the metadata should stay embedded in it.
How does the semantic layer stuff maintain consistency when you do this?
