Casual inspection of suggested that the main
'pinot' GUI can be used to instruct the pinot-dbus-daemon to start
indexing useful things like /home/olpc. In the future, it would be
helpful if journal2 came with a sample ~/.pinot/config.xml or if its
README instructed users to enable indexing in some other fashion.

Unsurprisingly, indexing on the XO is quite slow. More interestingly,
though, result retrieval and display is slow as well. 

Perhaps result display is blocked on result retrieval which is, perhaps,
competing with an indexing thread in a single low-priority process?
