Just to contextualize further:  I'm only talking about having an option to
remove it from the opac-search.pl results page.  The COiNS info would still
be available in the details page.  We could also add it to the Cart and to
Lists, if it's not already there, so users still have a way to pull in
multiple items at once into their bibliographic utility.

I've got a preliminary patch going now, and just need to test to confirm (as
well as add all the install/management code), but my suspicion is that this
would reduce OPAC search times by 25-30%.  I'll confirm, and add that to the
bug report.

Thanks, all, for responding!  Others, please, if you've got
experience/thoughts/ideas, please keep them coming.
