2 is for minutes.  Doctest confirms.

comment in catalogindex.py is buggy.  Feel like adjusting?  Perhaps  
simply noting "per-minute"?  Or perhaps it would be nice to make some  
constants in interfaces.py around where the vocabulary is made?

I suggest hourly for date-based searches *if multiple time-zones are  
in effect*, so one person's date would not be the same as someone  
else's for an event that happens at a particular (UTC) time.

If you don't care about that use case, 0 should work.

comment error, as above.
