Ok,  here's a  round up:

 - Brassica : Already taken.
 - Sinapis : Appears to be clean. Good because it is close to synapse which
is a connection, and bad because it is close to synaptic (the package
 - Galanga : Appears clean. G could insinuate Gnome connection. Close to
Galago and Galaga which are both interely different software projects
 - Karashi : Appears clean. Could indicate KDE relation.
 - Pequin : Appears clean. Looks and sounds a bit odd.
 - Aji : Appears clean. There's something about it I dislike
 - XdgSearch: Totally clean (zero google hits). The "boring" but serious
name. We do more than searching in the strict sense though
 - {Meta,Data}Sauce : Unlikely :-)

And now my brand new suggestion: "ximas" - eXtensible Interface for Metadata
and Search services. Appears to be clean. It actually means something and
sounds more techy than spice-inspired names. I hope this is a compromise of
the suggestions so far. What do you think?

Unless I get better proposals or good reasons not to use ximas I will
dictate this as the new name so that we can on with the show :-)

 - ximas : Appears clean. SHort
