Subject Re: wildcardquery rewrite()
Date Wed, 07 Oct 2009 03:43:43 GMT
separately, perhaps we should consider doing the prefixquery rewrite
here for wildcardquery.

for example, SolrQueryParser will emit these 'wildcardqueries that
should be prefixqueries' if you are using the new reverse stuff for
leading wildcards: WildcardQuery(*foobar) ->

I don't think the prefix enumeration is really that much faster than
the wildcard one, but still thought I would mention it.
