We are using fielded query using EDISMAX which is passed into the q parameter.

How are you doing fielded search currently?  End users using the "lucene" query parser?  Or
using dismax/qf?  

I'm just curious to drill into your needs here exactly in terms of request/response and whether
a simple application layer handling of the alias need would suffice or this is something best
handled in Solr.
