Great article. Sounds like you're pulling a lot from your Pressflip experience.

I can emphasize with all the developers trying to figure out enterprise search. For our site, I went through nearly a year, and many index engines to finally get it right. There are some clever things programmers have to do do beyond the normal Lucene and engine tweaks. By thinking out of the box for their particular application (wrappers, pre-processing, etc), results can be much more useful than the normal search engine scoring scheme.
