What I think you are missing is that every search is a metaname search.
swish-e -w foo
is the same as
swish-e -w swishdefault=foo
Just because you don't specify a metaname doesn't mean it searches all
metanames. It doesn't.
I have wanted for a while to do something like:
swish-e -w city,state=foo
where it would search for foo in both metanames, or
swish-e -w *=foo
search regardless of metaname.
There might be a reason why that won't work, though. It would be hard
swish-e -w city,state='foo "bar baz"'
because you couldn't do a phrase match across metanames.
If you want to do an all search you need to wrap you data like:
But that does increase the size of the index.
