Mine is in a somewhat experimental stage of not defining 1=1 or 1=7, but 
having attrvalue attrtype and attrset. Our proximity implementation isn't 
quite up to scratch for the megamegasearch needed to find 'bib2 exact 
author scan' but it's getting there.

We have a non standard version which does 'component' searches (ie it
treats individual indexes as records rather than the whole record so you
only need to AND the terms together rather than proxing them to all within
a single index element) but we realise this isn't a standard way of doing
things and are investigating what we'd need to change to get full
proximity support working.

I also haven't done B support yet, but that'll take me five minutes.

(OTOH, we'd also very much like to see a proposal to standardise 
a component architecture for the ZIG! See my 'return pages with frodo and 
aragorn' example on the ZIG list.)
