The trick is that the URL template for a single field search is  
ideally different than the one for multi-field search. I don't think  
there's any way to get LibX to do that, I guess?

Blacklight definitely doesn't use anything that's "standard lucene- 
style search syntax", that could mean several things, but, no.  Much  
like VuFind or even some commercial/proprietary ILSs/OPACs that use  
Lucene under the hood, the actual user-facing app has it's own URL  
patterns, that are only passed to lucene under the hood, user's don't  
get to issue requests directly to lucene or anything.

Not sure if there's a way to set up a generic "Blacklight" config in  
LibX or not, every BL installation can have different field types and
