- if you don't need to store your criteria persistently so you don't  
need the Topic :)

- to use criteria from the request you can use SiteRoot/search  
template and pass criteria in the same way as the advanced search form  
does (SiteRoot/search_form)

- if you need search results view to look like a topic view, maybe you  
would like to create simple browser view which will pass criteria  
request to portal_catalog.searchResults method and display results as  
you need

- maybe you should take a look at "queryCatalog" script in  

- maybe other possible way is to create copy of one folder's supplied  
views (folder_summary_view, folder_tabular_view... etc.) and  
customized them to use queryCatalog script instead of  
getFolderContents script
