nope - we plan on implementing this in the next few weeks so will spec
it out as we go along

for services we would probably want the following for a file like

ServiceNameLocale= translated name of service

DirectoriesToWatch = $HOME/.tomboy
Exec = tomboy-indexer %1

ViewerExec=tomboy %1


In addition to the above we would need a tomboy.metadata file to specify
any custom metadata (like Note:Title, Note:Body, Note:Date etc)
