Yes, it is time we begin to back up the spec with code. Mind that the spec
is not finalized yet.

I'm wondering though - is it worthwhile to have a shared lib for this or
should we just have different glib and qt implementations? Or when you say
"no more than a couple of files" do you mean just that? Not a lib, but just
a couple files projects can inline?

Also; we need to start considering the toolkit bindings for the api. I know
of a handful people that are interested in helping out on gobject bindings,
but I have little information on the Qt world... Perhaps we should create
wiki pages - WasabiSearch{Glib,Qt} to have places to store information on
