My colleague even postulated that big sites such as e-bay would be using dedicated search technologies to accomplish categorical listings instead of querying the back end database. For example, if you searched for all products in the 'car' category, that instead of querying the database for all products in the car category (presumably a field value), that it would query the search technology for the products. Does this seem probably to anyone?
