New Filesystem Methodology

This is pretty cool (linked from /.) GNOME Storage is a module that allows file access through a) sql and b) natural language. So not only do you get to access files in a way such as "is file type of MP3 and artist = 'U2'", but you do it in natural language... "songs by u2". Very more "star trek" than "id3 -l *mp3 | grep -i U2" wouldn't you say? They have some other really cool looking features as well. I'm looking forward to see where this is going, and how similar it is to the all new wonderful doubleplusgood filesystem in the new Windows (Longhorn). I'm thinking that GNOME Storage will be out first though :)
