No, that's not how it's supposed to work! So here's our query:

 (make-instance 'gnus-search-mairix)
 (gnus-search-parse-query "from:alex since:3d"))

-> "f:alex d:20230128-"

And you've confirmed that running "mairix f:alex d:20230128-" works
correctly on the command line?

There's not much other processing going on. Mairix is weird about how it
ANDs and ORs search terms -- you can only OR on the same key -- but that
shouldn't be coming into play here.

For the record, you don't really need to be using gnus-search. If you're
happy with mairix's search language, and you don't expect to ever run
searches against both nnml and nnimap backends at the same time, it
probably won't get you much.
