More proposed updates. I've added a point 6 to the list at
http://wiki.freedesktop.org/wiki/XesamSearchUpdates. It has to do with an
inherent race condition in the search  interface. When you fire a search via
NewSearch the server might start firing HitsAdded signals before you have a
chance to connect to them - in fact it might start firing these signals
before the call to NewSearch returns! I think this is an optimization we

The proposed solution is to add a StartSearch() method to the interface.
