Any ideas how a mixed-type boolean keyword search could be achieved in

We have a requirement to enable a search on a database by keywords where the
following applies:

There are three "meta-keywords" in three sections. The latter two of these
"meta-keywords" are fine as they are - a search using AND on them will be
fine. It is the first of the bunch that presents us with a sticky problem:

This first "meta-keyword" is (a OR b OR c OR d OR e OR f)

Is there any way to do this without running two searches one on top of the

The search would look something like (ideally):

keywords=(england OR france OR germany OR spain) AND sport AND football

or something like that. Can this be done with ht://Dig or anything?
