 >>Basically your lucene_query function will return a true/false in one 
of the query predicates for each record.

Almost, it returns a score  - much more useful than just a boolean and 
the key difference between a search engine and a database (partial 
matching with relevance ranked scores). These can be used to sort 
results by relevance.
