SpotlightFS

New file system plug-in from Google’s Greg Miller, for use with Amit Singh’s MacFUSE:

SpotlightFS is a MacFUSE file system that creates true smart folders, where the folders’ contents are dynamically generated by querying Spotlight. This differs from Finder’s version of smart folders, which are really plist files with a .savedSearch file extension. Since SpotlightFS smart folders are true folders, they can be used from anywhere — including the command line.

OK, that is fucking cool.
