Why? object_implements indexes a list of interface dotted names. Would 
another type of index be more appropriate?

Good point. I wonder how many places we use a UID index. UID *metadata* 
is quite important, of course.

Me neither ... sounds bogus.

I'm pretty amazed that this is a ZCTextIndex as well. I always thought 
it was a FieldIndex.

Surely this is application specific too? I don't think Plone has such an
