i'd have the objects sorted out, that simply don't implement the necessary
callback function. this way only the "interesting" objects would take
part in that dance. knowing all modified objects just seemed an easy
way to get where i wanted.

hmm, after several posts to the zope list and now to the zodb-dev list
also, i guess that no one actually needs these hooks. everyone that
replied to me, suggested not to try it this way. now i wrote an index
manager, that keeps track of registered objects - still i have to register
objects in set methods and methods that otherwise change the state of
objects but all the other stuff is the way i want it now.

in short: probably to much work if noone wants to use it afterwards
(except me :)))
