Nice. I have never seen it.

However that does not use a modern indexed database that is
automatically incrementally updated. (I would propose extracting the
scanner part from it and using that for other databases, but that is
another project, nothing for Emacs.)

And it does not handle text queries like those you are interested in
when you are using Org mode.
