First of all, this is untrue.  WildcardQuery itself most definitely

The dilemma you've encountered is that QueryParser prevents queries

It will require more than that in this case.  You will need to create a 
custom parser that allows the grammar you'd like.  Feel free to use the 
JavaCC source code to QueryParser as a basis of your customizations.
