Oh yes, the query terms are reported in the order they appeared in the query,
so skip_to()'s semantics don't make much sense for this case.

Simplest other approach is just to stick the terms in a vector of strings, and
then use that:

vector<string> query_terms(query.get_terms_begin(), query.get_terms_end());
