Yelp has had an optional Beagle dependency for at least 2 years. It's
optional, and it's not news.

If maintainers want to add optional dependencies on things that might be
perceived as contravening your ideology, simply don't compile your
application with it.

I should also note that Yelp doesn't depend on Beagle in that particular
distro, but on a C library that can call into beagle itself.

FWIW, a Tracker-based search has recently been contributed to Totem, and
I'd be happy to accept a Beagle one.
