GLS³ and Beagle: Match Made in $PARADISE?

So, I just saw this announcement on gnome-announce-list:

GLS³ is an open source semantic storage solution for GNU/Linux that indexes your data, extracts from it metadata and relevant information, allows you to organize it using queries and tags, provides shared schemas between applications through an API, a pseudo file system for backward compatibility, a web interface, As-You-Type searching and more.

Let me cut through some of the buzzwords and just say this: it's an indexing system implemented at the file system level. That means, no indexing daemon, a la Beagle's, running off with your CPU at its leisure.

Now, which project is clearly more mature in the area of supported file formats and metadata? Beagle. And in the area of polished frontends? Beagle.

Am I the only one that thinks that these two projects need to work together to make one killer app.?
