    Isn't this missing the ```LIKE '%xxxxxx'``` case? I'd imagine a regex with $ in the end
in that case, so that ```xxxxxxy``` wouldn't match, while ```yxxxxxx``` would.
    But do we even need all these special cases? I would guess that always adding ^ and $
would always make it work? A few examples:
    ```LIKE 'xxxxxx'``` would become ```/^xxxxxxx$/``` which would only match ```xxxxxx```.
    ```LIKE '%xxxxxx'``` would become ```/^.*xxxxxx$/``` which would match anything ending
with ```xxxxxx```.
    ```LIKE 'xxxxxx%'``` would become ```/^xxxxxx.*$/``` which would match anything starting
with ```xxxxxx```.
