There is no way to do conjunctions in METASEARCH.

TWiki:Plugins.DBCacheContrib has had a syntax for doing these sorts of searches for ages. It's about time TWiki supported this (aside from anything else, the requirement to use %SEARCH to search meta-data is the single biggest block to more efficient store implementations.

The code it uses could probably be imported to core TWiki with very little effort. METASEARCH would gain the parameter query thus:

%METASEARCH{query="Firstname='Emma' AND Surname='Peel'}%

See also: TWiki:Codev/SimpleFieldQueriesInMETASEARCH which has more discussion.
