If you read the entire thread (yes a loooong read) then you'd find many approaches and most of them bad :)
We are actually using either contexts or somtehing similar to approach proposed by Darko (without dreaded % in the front of predicates of course! search in this thread for it).
The main idea is to keep binds, do not allow sql injection possibilities and also keep different plans for different search combinations. At least I personally don't know other techniques than either using contexts or something similar as Darko proposed. Or of course listing all possible combinations in your code :D
