It's a 'side-effect' of using ZCTextIndex, so yes.

The initial plan was for squid+edge side cache. We may be launching it
with apache/mod_proxy and changing to squid later on. This is going to
be done by the ZC staff.

Thats the idea on using CMFLDAP.

Thats a good question indeed. Afaict, no, but that may change.

Dunno about that.

Its a plain jane build, with some small patches (I copied the setup
from Tres' OSCOM demo).

Yes. Thats quite nice. I think that later on it would be interesting
to merge collector.zope.org there as well.

Oh, I forgot that part. Will check with Guido.
