I should add that, for my needs, I will be working with the Asian languages, and therefore KinoSearch is out. Having looked again at Plucene just now, it is unclear whether or not it would be helpful.
Also, as this is web-based, the user will only be given select rights, and not the full DB rights as you have suggested.
Having the user write the select query themselves would be an interesting option, but most of my users will be the average non-programmers without a clue as to how to do this, so the default behavior must be to accept the search terms as needing to be formatted for the DB query via the script.
