Damn, where's this documented?
I think this is _exactly_ what I've been looking for for ages, especially, I'm
guessing, that if you don't specify 'used' then:

1. It's assumed all indexes take part in the search
2. All parameters that aren't supplied are assumed to be blank, and therefore
will match anything?

Am I on the right track?

Furthermore, is there any way I can tell ZCatalog that nothing means nothing,
not everything?

For example, if I do searchResults(age=''), I want only records with a blank age
record, _not_ all the records.

Okay while I'm here, one final one.

We have the sort_on and sort_order parameters, they'll return stuff ordered


Whereas most humans would think the following would be more readable:


I guess ZCatalog uses cmp somewhere along the line. IS there any way I can pass
in a different cmp function for a given index?

Hah, just thought of one last one ;-)

Okay, we have sort_on, which lets me sort on one index. Is there any way I can
provide a secondary sort key?

something like
would eb a dream.

Wow, that turned into a ZCatalog wishlist... any ideas if any of it is
available, and if not, hwo hard it would be to achieve?
