hierarchies, hierarchies

Was again annoyed this morning at searching for some document and being unable to remember in which folder I put it..
Shouldn’t this problem be solved at some point? Actually hierarchies do not make sense all the time.. And when looking
at my home folder I actually hardly see any hierarchy anyway ;-)

So why not replace things by a fulltext index? Wouldn’t it make a nice file browser which basically just has a search engine? The same is actually true for mail and could be solved the same way if they are stored on disk and indexed aswell.. Isn’t GMail heading in such a direction? ;-)
