A lot has changed since 2006 -- we now have ProximityQuery, a subclassable
QueryParser, and expanded tutorial and cookbook documentation.  I'm glad I was

There are many approaches and many techniques... but since Peter contributed
ProximityQuery, I think that's become the easiest one to explore -- especially
since Moritz will be able to rapid-prototype a custom QueryParser in the
language where he is most comfortable.
