I think you'll find the dismax request handler helpful in general, it 
supports more flexible query wrangling like that.

With the dismax request handler, I think the bq (boost query) parameter 
will do what you need, eg:


The ^5.0 is how much boost you want, you can play around with it to see 
what works well for your use cases.
