Sounds interesting.  But it also sound kinda big, like Glimpse it requires
indexing, which is certainly efficient (unless the indexed stuff changes
frequently).  And I frequently grep in various corners of various machines, on
all of which I'd have to install this, which is already my turn off with GNU
grep...  At first sight my little script gives me more bang for the euro.
