Coveo Related Query

Implements the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework Recommendation component to get a result list related to the one executed in the main search interface.

The main purpose of the Coveo Related Query rendering is to execute a second query, slightly different from the current search interface query, which may take into account, or not, the current search interface filters in its advanced query expression (aq) and the current search interface query expression in its basic query expression (q).
