Well, maybe as a "package" that we does need to take care of it. Just as
some java libs we use in Forrest. Forrest devel does not take care of the
development of Java libs, we just copy the libs and use it.

BTW, this let me think in a search engine plug-in-like connector. Under
this idea we can allow people to write "connectors" for any search engine
they want. Is this a way? please comments.
