I think that's essentially what happens, except you also have to run  
a program that reindexes your hard disk, which can take an hour or  
more, so you do it while shopping, eating or sleeping.  If that  
happened to new users and they weren't expecting it, it might be  
unpopular.  If someone writes a plugin for Spotlight, it's a separate  
download, but the user has a little more control, and if anyone asks  
why, the answer is:  contact Apple.
