I was fundamentally against this package at first, but since it seems that
Fesco insisted on ABI compatibility ( for a single package which is dead
upstream ), instead of taking a brave action and drop paperbox, I had no choice
but help introducing it.

I agree on this point, but having two indexers running will bring most machines
to their knees as mentioned earlier, in fact only one tracker is eating enough
of my cpu.

There is still room for improvement if you have a better solution, a package
that passed review doesn't mean it is perfect.
