One idea: DON'T DO IT!!!!!

Seriously, if you find yourself trying to "play games" with field names, it 
says that you probably have a data model that is grossly out of line with 
the strengths (and weaknesses) of Solr.

Dynamic fields are fine - when used in moderation, but not when pushed to 

What are you really trying to model and why does it seem to depend on 
dynamic fields?

In particular, how would users and the application query those dynamic

Subject: Field Names

I was wondering if there was a way to define field names that are more less 
dynamic in nature but follow a regular expression pattern. I know you can 
have asterisk either as a prefix or a suffix but not both or somewhere int 
he middle of a name.

Goal: to define a field that takes up the form like 10*_* which would 
translate to 100_whatever thru 109_whatever; Any ideas please?
