Bug#451229: nautilus: Please enable beagle support

Package: nautilus
Version: 2.20.0-rudi.1
Severity: wishlist

Please enable beagle support in nautilus. The additional cost is
moderate, as libbeagle0 occupies just a few hundred k of disk space.

I am currently using locally a rebuilt nautilus package with support
for both tracker and beagle and I am very content with it.

The reason for wanting beagle is that, even though tracker is
lightning fast when dealing with small amounts of data, using it in
a real-life environment shows that it is not very mature yet. 

The trackerd crashes frequently over some mails, many data sources
which beagle support are still unsupported by tracker and most
annoyingly, tracker-search-tool often hits a timeout, waiting for
trackerd to return the results. Addionally, tracker's search result
are often extremely incomplete, especially for mail. 

Therefore, despite its higher memory consumption, beagle is still the
first choice for me and I would like Debian to support it out of the
box, just as Ubuntu does.
