 We have two problems:
1) Who set the location information? Responsibility of applications.
2) Where should that information be stored? In tracker. 

 but ...
1) No application is really setting location information except the
image viewer (and only for images)
2) Tracker 0.6 cannot store efficiently that information. We could try
to add a File:Location property, so you could set location for
everything known by tracker, but it is going to be very very
inefficient. This will be fixed in 0.7 .
