Subject Re: Hacking proximity search: looking for feedback

Very good points, I hadn't considered the term frequency of the digits
affecting scoring.  As an aside, can that aspect of the score be ignored for
these fields?

I need to spend more time with FunctionQuery, I haven't given it the
attention it deserves.

Great feedback, thanks for the notes.
