Absolutely. Determining query intent is an ancient, well researched and still active domain. And Google publishes their results regularly (kudos to them).

My point was more that encoding the relevant signals into a single general-purpose search box (a sort-of natural language) is an inherently noisy, ambiguous process. When you know what kind of search you want, it's better to factor out the relevant parameters and feedback loops explicitly, give them a clear UI and search flow. Rather than have users fumble with double quotes and double-guessing the query parser.

@Radim - is this something you are doing with your current startup? p.s. kudos from another fan of gensim.
