Feature Request: X1 to search Metadata: Digital Photo, MP3

Looks like file metadata searching is about to hit critical mass shortly,
such as searching for the "my son's birthday" metadata in digital photo file, or the song name in MP3 (WMA, etc.):

'Tagging' helps unclutter data

"Take photos. You may have an album for your beach trip, another for a son's birthday party. But how do you find photos of your wife?

Before, you had to scan through albums one at a time. With tags, you simply label photos individually when you first store them -- with descriptive words such as "birthday," "vacation," "fall 2004" and with the names of the people in each picture. You can then search for your wife's tag.

Flickr, which Yahoo Inc. bought in March, takes that approach -- and more. Your friends can tag your photos, too. So while you might have neglected to tag your friend's daughter, your friend can do so.

"Tags enable you to slice through all the photographs that you've got in whatever way you want to find them," said Caterina Fake, Flickr's co-founder."

"It is what X1 can do with the information found that is important."

Looks like file metadata searching...


Not only this, but X1 needs functionality where each time an appropriate file is added, changed or saved that it is reindexed. The "time" method of updating indexes is too processor intensive. Basically, X1 needs the ability to index/reindex on the fly as files are added, changed, moved, deleted, saved...
