GNOME File Management Framework

GNOME File Management Framework

Over the years I have, like most of you I'm sure, amassed a personal collection of many thousands of files, which for just as long I've either been meaning to organize or have in a very rudimentary way already organized via one scheme or another (Examples of said schemes are: arranging various files under various directories on my desktop, periodically archiving them offline, and utilizing a CD cataloging utility (DiscLib) to index all my offline files) to compound the problem, said files are now in quite a few disparate types of archive (ZIP and Tar files as well as mountable files) on disparate types of media, CD's, DVDs, internet servers, etc.

To me, you are referring to tools like Google Desktop, Beagle, or Tracker. As far as I can remember, the last one is the closest to your requirements: there is a daemon for the indexing part which is pretty light, you can query the index on the command line, there is nice integration with Nautilus and the Deskbar, it supports tags... The 4th point might be missing though. Have a look at it, you may like it.
