"ManagableIndex" is an indexing construction framework that
facilitates building new indexes managable via the ZMI.

It comes with field, keyword, range, path and word indexes
which can be used in place of the Zope standard indexes.
For all of them, value determination (how the value is determined
an object should indexed under), ignore values, type conversion,
normalization can be configured via the ZMI.
Text based field, keyword und word indexes support matching
not only for pattern with wildcards '*' and '?' but also
for regular expression.

If installed, all "ManagableIndex"s use "IncrementalSearch[2]"
which can drastically speed up queries dominated by quite
specific and queries (you will also need to use "AdvancedQuery"
to get this efficiency effect to its full extend).

Version 1.2 fixes a missing import in "PathIndex" and
defines a new method used from Zope 2.8.x on in the "Indexes" tab
of the ZMI.
