It's certainly better than incorrectly implementing prox, yes. However
what would be best is if we could decide how best to make CQL provide a
sensible mapping for your operator.

Errr, no. To clarify: The adlib context-set contains only the bits that
you would prefix with adlib. in the CQL.
So for example, adlib.allIndexes would NOT search dc.title or net.host,
but would search adlib.foo and adlib.bar

We did originally debate having magical index names to determine this sort
of thing, eg title (string) vs titleWord (word) but decided (I believe
correctly) that that was simply not the right way to go.

"Each index can also have its own configInfo section, as described below.
In this case, the information applies only to this index. This would be
used, for example, to say that a particular index supports something which
the rest did not."
That's the paragraph, I assume, and it's not what one might call
comprehensive, is it? :) I'll send Mike a revision.
