Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-3143) Supply a phrase-oriented QueryConverter for Suggesters

Supply a phrase-oriented QueryConverter for Suggesters

                 Key: SOLR-3143

and analyzes each parsed 'word' with the configured analyzer (separate tokenstream).

words[] = splitByIdentifierRules();
for (each word) {
 tokenstream ts = analyzer.tokenStream(word)
 for (each analyzedWord from tokenstream) {

However, for Suggesters this is not really optimal, because in the general
case they do not work one word at a time: they aren't really suggesting 
individual words but instead an entire 'query' that matches a prefix.

so instead here, I think we just want a QueryConverter that creates a 
single string containing all the 'meat', and we pass the whole thing to 
the analyzer, then the suggester.

The current workaround on the wiki to this problem, is to ask the user to write custom
code (, I think thats not 
great since this phrase-based suggesting is really the primary use case for
