> Queries which automatically produce multiple terms (wildcard, range, prefix, 
> fuzzy etc)currently suffer from two problems:
> 1) Scores for matching documents are significantly smaller than term queries 
> because of the volume of terms introduced (A match on query Foo~ is 0.1 
> whereas a match on query Foo is 1).
> 2) The rarer forms of expanded terms are favoured over those of more common 
> forms because of the IDF. When using Fuzzy queries for example, rare mis-
> spellings typically appear in results before the more common correct spellings.
> I will attach a patch that corrects the issues identified above by 
> 1) Overriding Similarity.coord to counteract the downplaying of scores 
> introduced by expanding terms.
> 2) Taking the IDF factor of the most common form of expanded terms as the 
> basis of scoring all other expanded terms.
