I wrote an adapter for Primo for ruby bento_search some years ago, but
haven't used it or touched it (or Primo) in at least 3 years (maybe more),
it is possible it doesn't work anymore if the API has changed in backwards
incompatible ways. It also has pretty limited features (just gets search
results, doesn't do facets).
