I have multiversioned metadata indexing in libferris already. This means that you can search for files based on what their metadata or tags were in the past as well as their current values. Indexing in libferris does not journal full file byte contents yet, as the current code in libferris is aimed mainly in desktop/intranet search more than backups.
Kfsmd was initially created to allow libferris indices to be updated in the background... making this process very visible to the user so that they are never surprised by a reindex crawl slowing the system down.
Something like bacula is a great time machine but you don't get the pretty GUI.
