  So the goal is to be able to turn off indexing for certain files?
  Baloo already has a global toggle to stop indexing anything, and you can also 
add folders to the exclude lists.
  But stepping back even farther: //why// do we want to turn off indexing for 
certain files? Is it because they might be dangerous? If that's the case, then 
we should work on sandboxing the file extractor, not break the functionality. 
We never intentionally break our software because it might be dangerous; we fix 
the danger, or offer a warning. Our users are adults and prefer to be treated 
as such.
  Perhaps we should get some more eyes on D8532: [WIP] Restrict file extractor 
with Seccomp <>.
