The idea, at least as expressed by lead dev Mike Pinkerton (of Camino fame) is that it's ostensibly supposed to compliment Spotlight, not replace it - hence the reason why it uses Spotlight's index file and mdimport.

What I don't understand is why it forces a rebuilding of the Spotlight index. Spotlight is supposed to dynamically update itself after the first time it's run (which is essentially the first time you instal Tiger), isn't it?
