There's currently no support for that in SQDL. I do have support for that in
SWISH::Prog::Lucy::Searcher -- check out the init() method source for example.

I welcome a patch to SQDL to add Lucy::Plan::Schema support. I suggest a static
class method that returns a data structure suitable for passing into the
'fields' param to the Parser constructor. Something like:

 my $fields = Search::Query::Dialect::Lucy->extract_schema_fields( $schema );
 my $parser = Search::Query::Parser->new( fields => $fields );

that "" error does indeed sound like a bug. If you could turn that into a
failing test case and open an RT ticket, I would be forever grateful. If you do
git, you can fork it from here

I'm ok with the current thread; I'll let others speak up if they find this too
