Judah, thanks. Like I said, I'm familiar to a certain level with full
text searches, inverted indexes and (basic) search techniques.

This situation, matching sets of documents against multiple predefined
searches instead of doing a single search at a time is however a tad
different and I don't know if there are special patterns available or
it's just a matter of doing sucessive individual searches.
