Currently the Virtuoso full text indexer (the x-any thingi) does not split words at dots. While this is perfectly find for numbers it does not make much sense for other words.
In my case it is file names that are not handled as I would like it. Imagine typical file names like "this.is.about.nepomuk.txt". I would like to find that file by searching for "nepomuk".
Thus, IMHO it should be done in a way somewhat similar to lucene: use the dot as a token delimiter in case it is not in between numbers. More or less...
