> ...it's possible to escape a whitespace character in the value of a term or prefix query
by using a backslash so that the QueryParser will not treat it as "special" (ie: won't split
on it when dividing the input into chunks for analysis).
> at a minimum, this should be noted here...
> http://lucene.apache.org/java/docs/queryparsersyntax.html#Escaping%20Special%20Characters
> ...but it got me wondering...
>    * is this a side effect of something else, or will QueryParser really respect this
everywhere? even in field names? (i haven't tested) ... i think this is a result of QueryParser
allowing you to escape any character even if it isn't "special" to the syntax
>    * shouldn't a space be considered "special" since it does trigger certain behavior?
... so shouldn't QueryParser.escape(String) escape spaces as well as the other special characters?
