I don't know very much about searching, but this definitely sounds
like a good idea. Also, especially when doing free text searching that
has large result sets, incremental searching is very beneficial. I
know Dieter Maurer has made a Zope2 implementation of this.

I would be interested in seeing a bunch of Gurus sit down at some
sprint and trying to come up with a catalog engine that is incremental
and uses query plans. There is no reason that would not be stupidly
fast. :) We can then make a new catalog that uses this engine but has
the same API as the old one, to ship with some future version of Zope,
say 2.12.
