Such as?

Or do you mean indexing emails and logs which is coming soon.

Tracker (in cvs) now does tags, extensible metadata, first class storage 
and persistence, rich first class objects and more powerful search (rdf 
query) all of which Beagle cannot do.

By end of August, the logs/emails should be done - I hope thats enough 
time to consider adding tracker to edgy as default? (I dont know what 
the cut off date for edgy is?)

Providing good apps without breaking the memory barrier is even better :)
