I'm afraid not.  GNUnet's file sharing encrypts all content using the 
keywords as the encryption keys.  Even if you request all of the content 
from a peer, you'd have no way of decrypting it.

I suppose the best way right now to search for content is by using common
keywords (like "mp3") or MIME types.

Hm, I haven't noticed any significant performance problems...  Maybe your 
system is tight on memory or hard drive space?  GNUnet needs a lot of 
both to function well, although that's mostly an artifact of the 
architecture.  -Nathan
