Subject Re: accessing the query string from inside TokenFilter

: its not really misleading. Its a bug.
: the queryparser's grammer/behavior is hardly set in stone. we can
: improve it, thats why the issue is open for anyone that figures out a
: good solution here.

it's working exactly as designed: whitespace delimites clauses.  

a new parser (or a new syntax) is a great idea that's been a long time 
coming -- but claiming the current query parser implementation is broken 
because it works this way is *absolutely* missleading. 

(among other things it suggests to novice users/developers that the QP is 
*not* working as designed, and that there may be some way to "fix" the QP 
w/o changing it's syntax.  and i have yet to see/hear anyone propose 
anything close to a solution that would actually accomplish that (it seems 
damn near impossible to come up with a way for whitespace to simultenously 
be markup to the queryparser, and also literal text -- but i look forward 
to hearing an actual suggestion)
