Yeah, but then we hit the problem of the Query terms having been through 

Maybe it would be nice if we had query syntax to indicate that terms had 
already been analyzed.

I struggled with this as well, and ended up implementing a parallel
query class hierarchy for query classes I cared about; they support a
toXmlNode that generates an xml tree that can then be parsed by the
Lucene XML query parser.  You can see the code here
but it would be hard to use outside my project.  A more general solution
would definitely be welcome.

One challenge of course is the wealth of different query parsers: it
would be nice to be able to emit classic Lucene query parser queries
where possible, wouldn't it, in addition to structured output like XML
and JSON?
