Subject Re: to OR or not

I much prefer the one catch-all field approach, personally.  As long  
as scoring works out how you'd like using this technique, then it'll  
make for simpler (and thus faster) queries.  However, reindexing is  
necessary to bring another field into the mix, whereas run-time ORing  
is more flexible and dynamically adjustable.
