I would suggest to make these:
- make a page in the wiki and write down the pros and cons.
- write a prototype app and test how well your solution will work
- write a tool to create the files you need

I haven't followed the discussion, but I think now one will be against
an xml file instead the idx as long as the old thinks will work 
further on and as long there are advantages towards the old solution.

I'm looking forward to your clip organizer app.

Hardlinks are a really nice thing.
