I am trying to get to grips with the plain Zope Text Index first.  
Andreas Jung pointed me to some zope 3 sample code (with explanations  
in german :)).

Have I understood it correctly that hurry.query currently hasn't  
implemented support of the standard full text index of zcatalog?

Mvh Sebastian
