Hi Dan,

Note that there's a slight optimization that could be added to z.a.catalog that
could help in a very limited case.  If the _sort_index is also a search index in
the query, if you run an intersection against that index last (e.g. via
"weightedIntersection"), the results will already be sorted by value and the
sort method of the index needn't be run.  At least I think this is true.
