In response to a previous question of mine, you replied that I ought to be
subclassing DirectoryResource rather than building it from scratch by
subclassing FilteredResource.  One reason I had to fall back to
FilteredResource is that I wanted to be able to let a subtree use its own
indexing strategy (perhaps creating indices of information that doesn't
actually live in the file system per se, but is instead accessed through
other channels).  Sounds like this new functionality you describe would
help me out quite a bit.
