I'm afraid that I did not understand much of the discussion on this
page. (But I don't intend to become a ZODB developer, so I'll simply
ignore it...) But if I'm right, this "lazy catalog awareness" would
mainly mean that ArmoredCatalog gets "official API calls" (1) to add
object to an update or delete list and (2) to index/unindex the objects
in these list. I think that this would be really useful.

never mind :) It's also my fault: I'm contended with reading a mailing
list (and sometimes making more or less clever comments), and I know
that Zope has far more elaborate discussion systems, like Wikis and fish
bowls. Only that I'm too lazy to scan through all this stuff to find a
better place for comments... And I know that it's fairly easy to miss a
