This could be done, but my concern is that when changes are made to the file
system this will cause the catalog to be out of synch until you re-index. How
does this work with Zope objects? If you move or delete a Zope object that is
cataloged does it automatically update the catalog?

With the most recent version of LocalFS, the bobobase_modification_time should
be the same as the object's mtime in the file system. Please let me know the
details if you're seeing anything different.
