This is one place where the BFS indexing shines. A userspace process
that tries to keep an index of data on the disk needs to reindex from
scratch every time it starts up if it wants to be absolutely sure its
database is up-to-date. The reason is that it cannot know how much
changed on disk while the process was not running. BFS does not have
this problem because, obviously, no attributes can ever be written
without BFS noticing.

But what happens if someone adds BFS read/write capabilities to e.g. Linux?
