[OpenAFS] File searching in openafs space

Under local partitions, if you need to look for a file with a given 
filename pattern, you can quickly search the entire filesystem with a tool 
like slocate that builds offline an index of all filenames present in a 
system, and makes then any particular search especially fast.

I was wondering if there exists a tool like slocate which can run on 
openafs partitions.

I understand that this no trivial task to provide such a tool as I guess 
it has to work with a client-server structure, i.e. a server doing 
indexing and answering to client requests for a given filename search, 
where the filename search is limited to the files the user has access to.
