Yes, you always get all the meta-data. However, does
anyone know how the "used" argument of
ZCatalog.searchResults works, or why you would use it?

Why is this important? I would suggest not putting big
stuff in the meta-data that might warrant this. Just
use the nifty new (v2.3) getObject method of the brain
to access whatever properties/methods of the actual
object you might need.

Lazy sequences work by not loading the result items in
memory until they are actually accessed.
