Thanks for the clarification - it's helped separate my understanding of the problem.

I don't actually need to have the special lucene characters as I'll be adding fields in future
such as "Must not include" etc. for which we'll substitute the lucene characters on behalf
of the user.

What this means is that the method I provided in the last post (but now using another method
name) is only suitable for our particular case as it provides for our requirements of escaping
the last character (side effect - by way of escaping lucene characters), escaping the lucene
characters, and removing single quotes.
