Description

Create a search facet that separates the return of results that match the user's query keywords + tags, from those that explicitly match only weighted tags.

Examples:

App 1 - name: "Foo Bar 1"

- App 1 is named "Foo Bar" and has no weighted tags applied to it
- The user enters a query of "foo [bar]"
- Give the "[bar]" in the tag portion of the user's query is a wrapped in brackets, it will not match the "Bar" in App 1's name, App 1 and will not appear in the result set.


App 2 - name: "Foo Bar 2"

- App 2 has the weighted tag "bar" applied to it
- The user enters the search "Cvan licks [bar] stools"
- App 2's title does contains the word "Bar", but because the tag "bar" was searched using brackets, App 2 is matched and returned only because App 2 has the weighted "bar" tag applied to it - not because the keyword query for "bar" matches App 2's title. 

The goal is to use "[]" (or some other syntax) to indicate the following search intent: "match if the bracketed tags match the weighted tags applied to an app, but do not try keyword matching these bracketed words"
Rob, I love this idea. What do ya say?
