Ok, so fx:

 {+, "content", "foo bar"}

Searches the content field for the phrase "foo bar"?

 {+, "artist", "foo bar"}
 {+, "group", "audio"}
Is a search for any audio file annotated to the artist "foo bar"?

How about logical OR, did you leave that out on purpose?

How about wildcards? Where do we allow them (if we do at all) in field name
and/or query string?
