Yep, since I was annoyed of this behaviour in BeOS, that feature was
present from the beginning on.
I think it would be okay to enable it in Tracker by default, without an
extra button. I would just then add some kind of help text in the result
window that the query runs without index, and might be therefore slow
(best with an option to fix that :-)).
