Ehm, locate works on any file. Not just the ones in packages. :)

I use locate on a daily bases. 'Ow, where did I put that file again?'
Locate is easy IMHO. Nuking it would be bad.

On the desktop, it would be nice if locate would be talking to tracker.
On the server, I would like to keep locate as it is. Usually, the
server-users don't even notice the cronjob, but do use locate. And they
are often more experienced users.
