Re: [mylyn-pmc] pre-req/works-with dependency for desktop search component

I see it the same way conceptually.

This is a really neat way to leverage core Windows search functionality,
and parallels exactly the way that Eclipse leverages the Windows
filesystem.  But if the pre-req thing is an issue tt could probably be
turned into a "works-with" dependency by falling back to a based
