    I have been thinking a lot about this! 
    - Solr currently exposes per-field query configuration as a fieldType param, not query
time (see [autoGeneratePhraseQueries and enableGraphQueries](
    - Solr doesn't yet have a way to pass per-field configuration at query time (my email
about multiple analyzers proposes one system for doing this)
    To do the latter, ideally you'd have an API that could let you see multiple views/configs
on the same field, such as the following which would search two query-time versions of the
actor field
    `q=action movies&qf=actor_syn actor_nosyn^10 title text&defType=edismax&qf.actor_nosyn.field=actor&qf.actor_nosyn.analyzer=without_synonyms&qf.actor_syn.field=actor&qf.actor_syn.analyzer=with_synonyms&qf.actor_syn&scoreOverlaps=pick_best`
    I think this sort of syntax could be extremely powerful, and deal with the ability to
configure multiple query time analyzers. But a bridge too far for this PR...

> This patch customizes the query-time behavior when query terms overlap positions. Right
now the only option is SynonymQuery. This is a fantastic default & improvement on past
versions. However, there are use cases where terms overlap positions but don't carry exact
synonymy relationships. Often synonyms are actually used to model hypernym/hyponym relationships
using synonyms (or other analyzers). So the individual term scores matter, with terms with
higher specificity (hyponym) scoring higher than terms with lower specificity (hypernym).
> This patch adds the fieldType setting scoreOverlaps, as in:
> {code:java}
>   <fieldType name="text_general"  scoreOverlaps="pick_best"  class="solr.TextField"
positionIncrementGap="100" multiValued="true">
> {code}
> Valid values for scoreOverlaps are:
> *as_one_term*
> Default, most synonym use cases. Uses SynonymQuery
> Treats all terms as if they're exactly equivalent, with document frequency from underlying
terms blended 
> *pick_best*
> For a given document, score using the best scoring synonym (ie dismax over generated
> Useful when synonyms not exactly equilevant. Instead they are used to model hypernym/hyponym
relationships. Such as expanding to synonyms of where terms scores will reflect that quality
> IE this query time expansion
> tabby => tabby, cat, animal
> Searching "text", generates the dismax (text:tabby | text:cat | text:animal)
> *as_distinct_terms*
> (The pre 6.0 behavior.)
> Compromise between pick_best and as_oneSterm
> Appropriate when synonyms reflect a hypernym/hyponym relationship, but lets scores stack,
so documents with more tabby, cat, or animal the better w/ a bias towards the term with highest
> Terms are turned into a boolean OR query, with documen frequencies not blended
> IE this query time expansion
> tabby => tabby, cat, animal
> Searching "text", generates the boolean query (text:tabby  text:cat text:animal)
