Medusa indexes keywords associated with files.  It recognizes Nautilus's
emblems as keywords.  Searching for 'new' or 'draft' will return all
files and folders tagged with meta data.

It is possible to use other piece of information for keywords from
pseudo file systems: Epiphany bookmarks, and the important flag in
Evolution mboxs as an example.  Once Medusa is reintegrated with
Nautilus, new ways of associating keywords with files can be explored,
for instance: using the gnome recent file list, or when Evolution saves
an attachment it could provide some meta data about the source.
