Default tracker in F16

Hey, folks.

So, in F16, totem has grown a dependency on tracker, via grilo-plugins.
This means tracker is now present and active in default F16 installs,
where it wasn't before. This is leading to the problems that have been
endemic to desktop search mechanisms ever since the first one crawled
out of the fiery pits of hell - excessive resource consumption, viz:


peter robinson reckons it would be easy to split out grilo-plugins'
dependency on tracker and hence get tracker out of the default package
set again, if that's desired:


so, what's the plan here? is tracker's default inclusion a mistake which
can be rectified as per pbrobinson's plan, or should we be trying to get
tracker excessive-consumption bugs fixed?

if it's going to be in there by default, it should probably have a less
aggressive indexing policy by default. it installs with its
aggressiveness set to max, a fairly expansive set of search paths
(including removable media), and without the config tool which lets you
tweak these things, as nothing has a dep on tracker-search-tool.
