Our SRU implementation is at level 0, for only keyword searching. We
don't have any Boolean functionality. More here:

Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] OpenContent SRU search of OAISter, weirdness?

It doesn't actually work with OAIster's own SRU interface, either.  A
query for the title works, but adding the author's name fails.

OAIster's SRU implementation is very strange, though, so I could very
well be doing something wrong.
