Tracker: Reading it both ways :(

Normally I refrain from criticising other projects that are "competing" with my little hobby -- libferris. I mention competing in quotes because hobbies don't really compete in a commercial sense. But having read this post recently on planet maemo about Tracker progress I was a little overwhelmed, wondering, was the Tracker code really so bad a year ago?

"In this last year, we refactor (well, almost rewrote) the daemon"

and talks about replacing the crawler code wholesale. Sure progress sometimes includes churn of functionality: reimplementing stuff with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight. But this seemed a little dramatic...
