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 
   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.
