I disagree but it's not worth arguing about. However, the people who pay my
salary feel that way which means I care ;-)

Thanks, I always forget the flexibility of ZCatalog :-) That said, how hard
would it be to alter ZCatalog so you could override the comparison function it
uses? It feels like a ,cmp=cmp argument to the added search index consructor,
then a self._cmp = cmp in the constructor, followed by a query and replace on
cmp with self._cmp in the search index source. But I might be completely wrong

Apart from that, any ideas how I'd search for a record where the indexed
attribute is blank or the secondary sort stuff?
