A couple of years ago. (hehe - sorry, had to).  The Z Search Interface
is well defined (not well documented) and the Catalog is not the only
object that implements it, so do ZSQL Methods and Z Network Adapters
(which you've probably never heard of, they're buried in the CVS
somewhere...).  The 'Z Search Inteface' object is one tool in particular
that uses it, perhaps you can in imply the interface from that since it
is not documented.
