Sorting is completely customizable within Xapian itself, as you supply a
"template" for it to output in. This defines more than just the output
format, unfortunately. I'm not sure how much stuff I've seen is Locayta
(the commercial version of Xapian, which we use) and how much is Xapian,

I don't think you can change its ranking algorithm particularly, but you
might possibly be able to weight bits differently.
