Subject Re: [Bug 12137] New: - Can '*' or '?' symbol be used as the first character of a search?

Did my suggestion not make sense?

I think we can make everyone happy here.  By adding a parameter to the 
existing query parser we can:
   1. Keep things so that the default behaviour is not to permit initial 
wildcards.
   2. Make it so that developers who want to permit initial wildcards 
can easily do so.
   3. Keep a single version of the query parser.

Brian, do you have a problem with this approach?  Does anyone else?

If not, then it's just a SMOP.

Doug
