Unity lenses are becoming more interesting as time goes on, but unfortunately, you can only have its benefits if using a default Unity session. While there are alternatives such as kupfer, or the now defunct Unity-2D, a kubuntu** plasmoid to access Unity lenses would be really valuable for integration, or plugins for launchers like kupfer or gnome-do. So since nobody seems interested I'd like to try myself if possible at all.
So my question is: Is there any way to query, and get search results, from Unity lenses without using Unity? Any dbus-interface, some specific library, anything at all? Doesn't need to be an easy "run this one-line command" solution, or give human-readable results. I can handle C or Python coding.
**(I say Kubuntu but this would be valuable in any other mainline desktop environment, including CLI)
