Also, as I understand it, you can get more benefits from the "regular
content" ZODB cache if you're not constantly moving tons of catalog
data through it, so there's a performance win.

We've been discussing doing this for openplans.org... one question
that came up that none of us knew the answer to: If I undo some
changes to content, what happens to the index values for that content?
Does undo fire an ObjectModifiedEvent? If not I'd guess that the
catalog will still contain pre-undo data.
