Today I have posted on the net the first version of cfind. Follow the link and you'll see what it is about. From time to time I'll use the code I write for cfind as a support for presenting various ideas in this blog.
Have you looked at doodle , and libextractor that it uses?http://www.gnunet.org/doodle/http://www.gnunet.org/libextractor/doodle already implements an slocate-like SUID binary to allow a user to see only the files he can access.
Thanks for the pointers: it looks like an interesting project.
