A new project called Pathena has been created on PgFoundry. Pathena leverages
PostgreSQL and Tsearch2 to implement a desktop search tool with a GUI client.

publish as an experimental end-user application.
An initial release is available on the PgFoundry project page:
A description of the tool is also available:
