hmm, as it seemed quite impossible the way i wanted it, i almost dropped
it from my wishlist. now you say, it's doable...
i already had hacked into zodb.connection, the problem was that the
objects maintained there (self._registered_objects) are not wrapped
for acquisition, thus my reindexing method did not find the catalog to
register with. how would you solve this problem?

to answer your question above: a point-in-time list would be enough for
me, just like to reindex all modified "model" objects. that should only
change indexes.
