Implement new feature:

During indexing for product entities:

  • apply the most restricting rules from any category a product is assigned to
  • if the product has more restricting rules, use those.

The result would be, that for a given store, any group that is unable to access a category a product is assigned to, or is unable to access a product individually, would be unable to access that product.

So in effect it would be enough to manage visibility rules for categories, and products are hidden automatically.

A side effect would be slower indexing because of the increased processing overhead.

Optional: make this configurable on a per-category basis?
