Bug description:
The Unity interface, with its files-place feature for user access to 
files/documents etc. is really great.

However there is a problem since the search feature relies wholly on zeitgeist 
(AFAIK), in the zeitgeist is not tracking everything.

E.g. in openoffice, I create a new file (or open an existing one) from within 
openoffice itself. This file does not show up, presumably because openoffice 
does not (yet) push its activity to zeitgeist.

I guess any number of other programs could suffer the same problem.

For the average user, this is surely going to be confusing. They will create 
documents via legitimate means ('New ...' buttons in their applications), and 
then expect to be able to search for them in the Unity files-place interface.

To avoid this confusion I would guess there really needs to be a filesystem 
watcher on the home dir (or key folders within it) so that zeitgeist is aware 
of activity caused by non-zeitgeist-aware applications.
