Subject: Boosting newer inserted items in search?

My gut tells me that multiplying a function of the date field with the
full-text relevancy score will work better than adding a function of
the date field.
BoostedQuery can do this via BoostQParserPlugin

And for the function, you could make it flatter or steeper depending
on how much you wanted date to influence the score.  Might try a recip
function or a linear function on the ord of the date field.  We don't
yet have any functions that work on the actual date values.
