[LibX] SFX source parser for LibX?

Related: Melissa Belvadi, who wrote her own OpenURL resolver at
Maryville, requested that if LibX calls an OpenURL because the user
selected the "Scholar" search and LibX found a hit on the Scholar
results page, that in that case we send along a field "origdata=..."
in the OpenURL that has the query string LibX ran against Scholar.
This is implemented, see http://libx.org/addproperties.html

This allows her OpenURL resolver to offer an option to the user in
case LibX's heuristics produced a false positive, as it sometimes does
if Scholar doesn't rank hits properly.

An SFX source parser could presumably offer the same option (if SFX
allows non-standard fields in the OpenURL.)
