I just took a look. Wow, that implementation is indeed *much* cleaner.

The indexes will come straight out of there without changes. The
Catalog class that ties them together, will not. But, of course, it's
a fairly simple class and would be easy enough to create a version
without the Zope application hooks.

(I notice that the new Catalog has no Brains. Sure, the use of uidutil
is clearer, but it has a bit less flair than PluggableBrains :)

Is anyone else planning to package this up for use outside of Zope, or
should I go ahead and do that? I need it for my own use, so I might as
well share...
