Search seems to use OR

When I search for a couple or more terms, the results seem to be done by using OR

e.g.: rails fixtures -> SQL: something like rails OR something like fixtures

I thought that the whole idea of adding more keywords in a search would be to narrow down the results. This might be a bug or a feature but if it is the lated, I think we need a way to do an AND search too

    That was the point in the big move to sphinx, but it didn't work out for other reasons. As it is, the search parsing will have to stay simplistic until we can find an indexing backend that works out and has a more powerful query language.
