Glimpse is a combination of agrep (a version of grep tuned for
searching for words and permitting Boolean queries), and an indexing
system.  It's not a general-purpose database system, and as far as I
can tell it's 100% useless for Oriental languages.  But if you have
lots of email and stuff like that that you'd like to be able to search 
for on arbitrary keywords, you should check it out.
