Bad example, sorry. The "all" search takes a query and converts it into
a multiple "OR" query, like you suggested.
I think it's more flexible implemented outside of swish. Still, one of
the "fuzzy" modules, DoubleMetaphone does something like this.
DoubleMetaphone sometimes generates two codes for a single word. So
swish-e indexes those both with the same position number. Then when
searching Swish-e takes the two codes and creates an "OR" search.
The problem with that is with the current state of the query parser that
fails when used inside of a phrase. (See SWISH-BUGS)
