[Zope-CMF] Make folder and contents non-ZCatalog-able

Here's a possible solution:

Add a script to portal_skins called "show_in_search"
that generally returns 1, but has some logic to return
0 for objects that you don't want displayed in search
results.  It's up to you to determine the logic
suitable for your situation.

In portal_catalog, create a FieldIndex named
show_in_search, then update your catalog (using the
button in the catalog's Advanced tab).

Then track down any templates or scripts that do
searches where you want to filter out results, and
customize them adding to the catalog query

If necessary, you can just add that extra condition if
the current user is anonymous (or lacks some
sufficient role), if that makes sense for your use

I've also done things like adding a boolean property
at the site-level that is true, then adding a property
with the same name but a false value to specific
folders, and creating an index on that property and
tweaking my search templates and scripts to use that

Hopefully this will give you some ideas.
