: Good point.  Yeah, it does make sense for the query type to be part
: of the query string itself.  There are lots of places that a
: QueryParser expression can currently be used (&q=, &fq= with standard
: requests, and other places with dismax).

are you guys concerned that people will want to use different sytnaxes for
different places where a query is expressed, ie: use the stock syntax in
one "fq", the xml syntax in a "q", and the surround syntax in a second
"fq" ?

i'm not sure if i'd be that worried .. i would think that with
StandardRequestHandler you'd probably want to use the same syntax
everywhere, with dismax you'd use the dismax syntax for the "q"
(obviously) but the fq/bq params could all just use the same syntax.

putting a prefix on every query string to identify the syntax seems
cumbersome ... put i guess it wouldn't be too bad if it was done as an
"override" for a single q.syntax option thta influenced all "query
strings" type params that didn't start with the special markup.

using an xmlish processing instruction looking header may not be the best
choice if one of hte sytnaxes we want to support is XML  :)
