Both strigi and Nepomuk are enabled by default since 4.1, you can use alt+f2, dolphin search box or nepomuk KIO to use them, a "nice GUI" will exist if someone take time to write one.

Isn't Krunner (alt+F2) the GUI?

Dolphin's search and also the menu search box also use strigi (and hence present alternative GUIs) don't they?

BTW, here is a hint: remove the default KDE menu from the panel, and instead add the Lancelot Menu plasmoid. Configure the Lancelot Menu plasmoid to present the "categories" (select from: applications, places, documents and contacts) as separate panel icons. The improvement is amazing.
