aperture has IMAP,
mailbox, and MS-Outlook (desktop version, ahem) crawlers.

crawled results in RDF

yep, we are working on that in SMILA.
I am not on it and cannot speak much about it, because I am a bit busy
with other things,
but in general there was a plan for a possibility to pipe RDF through
SMILA,
whats the status of that, btw?

Aperture returns RDF which is a kind of semantic data from the start.
It adhers to the OSCAF.org standard ontologies also used by KDE and
gnome and NOKIA for MAEMO.
so, you won't get more standard than that I guess for document indexing.

Once this all works, the data is compatible with some of the other
semantic search engines out there
(nepomuk, strigi, ....)
