Okay, perhaps the trigger should be the depth of the small-bucket tree.

That may just end up causing delays periodically in transactions... ie delays
that the user sees, as opposed to doing it via another thread or something.  But
then as only one thread would be doing this at a time it might not be too bad.


ClockServer sections can now be specified in zope.conf. If you specify them with a period of say 10 mins (or even 2) then the queue should never get too large, and the linear search time is not a problem as n is small.

Essentially you end up with a solution very similar to QueueCatalog but with the queue being searchable.

The pain is then in modifying all of the indexes to search the queue in addition to their standard data structures.
