I've been using Linux and Unix professionally since 1995, mostly in Linux-related sysadmin/systems architect jobs supporting academia. I generally know my stuff, but am very happy to learn something new and to be corrected when I'm wrong. Currently, I am the Fedora Project Leader.

@Humble Debugger — Strigi has a plugin interface, so all sorts of lightweight clients are possible, and in theory you could find one and attach that to a keyboard shortcut. Except, I don't know of any clients that anyone actually ever implemented.

The reference bittorrent implementation is written in Python, by the way.

Ah, right, that makes perfect sense. Thanks.

Ahh, the nuances of packaging systems. So where is "python and python2 are in conflict (python<3). Remove python2?" coming from?

comment Arch Linux: python and python2 are in conflict
So, is it the updated python ( that is, python 3) which is set to conflict with python<3, or is it compiz-fusion-gtk doing that? If it's the new python, that leaves @Blender out of luck, as long as anything still requires python2, right?

I'll add that. But you can actually do a whole lotta ignoring gshadow and still have things work.
