Nothings really changed then, its always been somewhat of a CPU hog,
although generally most packaging people had a separate tracker
subpackage so you could just remove it completely. It seems
grilo-plugins has a tracker interface, it looks like the tracker
component could be split out into a subpackage, not sure what impact
that would have on the grilo package as a while though.
