There is no built-in way. however I see no reason that the Catalog could
not be extended to do this with a bit of python coding.

A catalog contains a collection called indexes that contains the indexes
themselves (what else?). An External method could be written like so
(not tested):

def partialReindexObject(catalog, indexes, uid, object):
        rid = catalog.uids.get[uid]
        for idx_key in indexes:
                idx = catalog.indexes[idx_key].__of__(catalog)
                idx.index_object(rid, object, None)

I think that will do it. Pass the names of the indexes as a sequence in
indexes, and data_record_id_ as the uid.

The above does not update any meta-data in the catalog.
