Re: Custom Iterators
Err, double (triple) reply:

No, you are incorrect. The wikisearch example can handle any arbitrary
boolean expression containing NOT, AND, and OR. As always, I'll preface
it the same as Bill did: it *should* be able to handle them :).

I know that cleaning-up/reworking the Wikisearch code is in the works.
I'm just not positive about the timeframe.

As far as examples, I'd push you to the write-up Eric did after
benchmarking the wikisearch example:
http://accumulo.apache.org/example/wikisearch.html

He has some example queries that give the basic idea behind what's
supported (minus the NOTs)
