okay, here's one for the gurus.

I'd like to be able to preserve user state, which is held in the query string.
So my idea is to return just the urls from a search that match the state
of the user. Basically, we have a ?lang=en or ?lang=fr, and since many
of our pages are not translated yet, it's the same page regardless
of the language they ask for.. So any search will return 2 pages,
( the same page, but the urls that differ in the query string )
one for english, and one for french. I would like for the search to only
return one or the other, even though both should be indexed.

Something like a bad_querystr attribute would help perhaps,
but that is only for the indexing, not
for searching, and I also need to set this unknow attribute dynamically.

filtering the search's output with my own parsing could be gross.
There must be a better way.

any ideas?
