I prefer this default.

Anyone using QueryParser needs to be aware of the issues of exposing 
fuzzy queries, range queries, and any other types the syntax supports.  
It would not be Lucene's fault if a system with millions of documents 
is exposed through QueryParser and fuzzy queries take a bit longer or 
thrown a TooManyClauses exception.
