Re: Why file content sniffing sucks

  While I agree that the original email was heavy-handed and sarcasm
laden, the author did pose some good questions and valid technical
points.  Why is file content a necessary in Nautilus and GnomeVFS?  It
does seem to incur more cost than the benefits it imparts, even when
viewing it from only a system resource (disk IO) perspective.

  As a long time Gnome user, I kind of question the need for forcing
what should be an optional feature on the user base.  Perhaps you might
address the questions and not the authors mean spirited attitude in
asking those questions...
