It's a bit a shame that there isn't any default good indexing system for 
Now there is also a inotify implementation and tools to set up watchers 
on the filesystem,
so why are we still mainly stuck with locate and the expensive updatedb?

Are there other problems with the inotify approach maybe or just lack of 
developer interest?
