I might, but the challenge is to match on (.*)/$uri, and then thiss.io's 
SEARCH_URL should be augmented with the match from (.*) if I wanted to keep 
things flexible on pyff's side?

Hence my second question:

So, has thiss.io been developed and/or used with pyff's select as alias in 
mind and, will pyff allow the alias on the /api/search endpoint? Maybe Scott 
made it work as he needs select as in some of his deployments?
