I'm not sure if the authors of any filesystems are present in this NG but I
would like to suggest a new feature to combat WinFS. Why not allow
properties to be added to any file, of any length and or type. This way, we
other programs could be used to search the filesystem in a database like
manner.

For example, an indexing property would be used to index the disk files and
maybe even its contents.

What do you guys think?
