Subject: Re: [search-ws] CQL Parsing Questions

It is intended for both.  The simple queries are intended to be keyed in by 
humans, the complex ones (with prefix assignments, proximity clauses, etc.) 
are not.

In any case, does someone have a simple suggestion for fixing the BNF to 
eliminate this flaw?

I'm afraid it is intended for human production.  If we were only
interested in machines, we'd be using XCQL.

That doesn't mean that all the extra baloney to support minimizing
typing couldn't go away.
