I've been a very satisfied user of HoudahSpot for some time. I downloaded Tembo on a whim and generally like it. One question: Is there any way to search for "invisible" or "hidden" files like ~/.bashrc ? Spotlight doesn't index these files, although I wonder if there's a setting somewhere to get these into the index.

Spotlight does index some invisible file, but not others - depending on what method was used to make them invisible.

The Spotlight engine however does not return invisible files unless it is specifically asked to.

HoudahSpot does have an option to search for invisible files. Tembo does not.
