I think we already have something along these lines with M-x locate, and
there are others for specific backends (like id-utils).  I'm not sure to
what extent the UI can be shared between the various search engines, but
it would be good to try and come up with one (or a small set) of
commands that can dispatch to any/various backends.  Then id-utils.el
could simply provide the GNU id backend for that command.
