Excuse me for not reading all the discussion up there..

>From the first time i used the dash, i found it extremely handy and
useful; but for what are my necessities zeigeist's way to search files
is not suited for me, so that i'm only using tracker.

So I ask: can you integrate tracker, obviously as an option and not as
default, with the dash search lens?

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.

  (See also bug 897393, about warning users that the search doesn't
  search all files.)
