Perhaps I expressed myself poorly.

What I am watching out for is evidence that adding,
indexing, reindexing, or retreiving *a single object* (or a
small set of objects), takes longer if there are more
objects stored/indexed already.

In other words, does the time to
store/index/reindex/retreive an object change (for the
worse) depending on whether there are 10,000 objects,
100,000 objects or 10,000,000 objects stored/cataloged in
the ZODB/ZCatalog?

Previously, the fact that searching performance suffered
depending on a combination of number of total objects and
the size of the result set (irrespective of the batch size,
apparently), came to light, and has apparently been fixed.
Now searching performance scales with the number of
cataloged objects.

So, are there any non-linear gotchas waiting for me?
