 From what I was reading in the mailing list there are more lucene users 
that would like to be able to construct sufix queries.
They are very usefull for german language, because it has many long 
composite words , created by concatenation of other simple words.
This is one of the requirements of our system. Therefore I needed to 
patch lucene to make QueryParser to allow SufixQueries.

Now I will need to update lucene library to the latest version, and I 
need to patch it again.
Do you think it will be possible in the future to have a field in 
QueryParser,  boolean ALLOW_SUFFIX_QUERIES?

 Thanks for understanding,
