From John:

> change the advice given to readers. One approach would be to enable readers

> concern of continually getting nil results with a long Boolean AND search.

This is just one suggestion, and further discussion is needed prior to making
any changes. May also be deferred from 2.0.1 to a later release.
Comment 1 John Willinsky 2005-05-27 08:42:49 PDT
Yes, I think it should be deferred, with possible approaches discussed.
Comment 2 Alec Smecher 2012-09-24 08:45:21 PDT
John, is this still relevant?
