My approach would be to improve the catalog adapters. Even if you

I have tried this initially but found it impossible to "override" the
existing adapter for IZCatalog. I always got complaints from the
adapter machinery about duplicate registrations. I may be missing
But fixing some general catalog adapter issues will make your
special behavior obsolete:
- The adapters should compare the new settings with the existing
ones and make sure indexes are only updated if they are actually
changed. This is not implemented so far.
- The adapters should modify existing indexes if the profile
contains new settings. This is not implemented for the 'extra'
- Reindexing might be very expensive. That's the reason why
GenericSetup does no reindexing, you have to do it manually. We
need a better solution for that, maybe some bookkeeping which
indexes need to be reindexed and a button in the setup tool that
