when you know where to look for, it's not that complicated ;)

those are the changes I think are needed:

- in LuceneQueryBuilder.visit(TextsearchQueryNode node, Object data) we 
need to switch to a different QueryParser that allows wildcards at the 
beginning of a term. The current QueryParser is the one shipped with lucene.
- Adapt the default lucene parser definition and integrate generating 
the new custom parser into the maven build process. You will notice that 
there is a already a comment in the QueryParser.jj file shipped with the 
lucene source distribution that shows how to enable prefix queries.

hmm, I guess that's it already.

jcr:like was introduced to map the LIKE operator from SQL to XPath. And 
because LIKE is case sensitive in SQL it must behave the same in XPath.

whereas with jcr:contains the aim is to provide a fulltext facility 
which is among other things _not_ case sensitive.
