Thank you Charles. I will look into those tools.

It seems Gnome is adopting another tool -- tracker (doesn't depend on
Gnome at all). It is new, so there isn't an Emacs interface to it.

http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/Tracker

,----[ tracker ]
| Tracker is a powerful desktop-neutral first class object database,
| tag/metadata database, search tool and indexer.
| 
| It consists of a common object database that allows entities to have
| an almost infinte number of properties, metadata (both
| embedded/harvested as well as user definable), a comprehensive
| database of keywords/tags and links to other entities.
| 
| It provides additional features for file based objects including
| context linking and audit trails for a file object.
| 
| It has the ability to index, store, harvest metadata. retrieve and
| search all types of files and other first class objects.
