Put it all in one catalog (and even one product table).  You can
specify different flypages for different items and different results
pages for specific scans.  Doing this probably means changing the
bar_link subroutine so that the links built for the leftside include
the 'sp' (or mv_search_page).  There might be some way to do this with
the UI and not have to modify bar_link.  However, as discussed in
another thread I don't really know all the stuff that can be put in
the 'cat' table for various link types.
