(default) non-special words check for a string match on every field of the object.
:has:[something] true if the object has a field named something
:is:[something] same as :has:
[key]:[value] true if value equals the key property
AND does nothing (it's the default)
OR logical OR of the conditions on either side
NOT negates the next keyword
-[something] negates the next keyword; unlike not doesn't need a space
( and ) allows grouping of terms
