I don't think so. Here are some random thoughts on the idea:
- The 'searchResults' method must pass its keyword arguments as
part of the cache key.
- I don't know if there is a reasonable way to do 'mtime' for
the catalog: we would like to be able to get an mtime cheaply
for the BTrees (indexes, the 'data' container), but I don't know
if that is possible.
- The "right" place to do this feels like the 'searchResults' of
ZCatalog, just before it calls 'self._catalog.searchResults'.
- The CMF's catalog overrides 'searchResults', but calls it at
the end, so everything there should work.
