Maybe I don't understand zodb correctly but if the catalog is small enough
to fit in memory wouldn't it be much faster to just cache the whole catalog
on the clients? Then at least for catalog searches it is all mostly as fast
as running through python objects. Memcache will put an extra
serialize/deserialize step into it (plus network io, plus context
