Currently my constructor method contains
the following (mk_dtml_document is my custom class which subclasses DTML
Document, Extra is the name of my custom propertysheet):
<dtml-comment> How can I change original title? </dtml-comment>
title is present in REQUEST and is not set in created document.

I hate replicating code. I love calling it. Couldn't it be done this

I tried defining DTML Method with name PrincipiaSearchSource and
(body is my custom property name).
Next I clicked 'Update Catalog' in ZCatalog screen. Seems my attempt has
been ignored - the amount of objects indexed via PrincipiaSearchSource
(according to ZCatalog status screen) has not changed (those object are
succesfully indexed on title etc).

Because I have not done it previously and now I have about 100 objects
of this type and do not know how to perform such a change.

What about some sample code?
