I am aware of the sort:date feature, but what I am looking for is different. Let me try to explain.

I do not want to see the results sorted by date, but rather the results sorted by relevance with the date used to filter out some results. This is distinctly different from getting all results, regardless of their relevance, sorted by date. I rarely care about the most recent update on any given topic, I generally want the best result that occurred within a certain date range.
