Implement boundary match support

                 Key: SOLR-1980
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Schema and Analysis
            Reporter: Jan Høydahl

Sometimes you need to specify that a query should match only at the start or end of a field,
or be an exact match.

Example content:
1) a quick fox is brown
2) quick fox is brown

Example queries:
"^quick fox" -> should only match 2)
"brown$" -> should match 1) and 2)
"^quick fox is brown$" -> should only match 2)

Proposed way of implmementation is through a new BoundaryMatchTokenFilter which behaves like
On the index side it inserts special unique tokens at beginning and end of field. These could
be some weird unicode sequence.
On the query side, it looks for the first character matching "^" or the last character matching
"$" and replaces them with the special tokens.
