At present, CodeStriker requires you to search for an
author using the entire email address. Please support a
wildcard search, or at very least a "starts with" search
so one can omit the domain part of the email address.

Imagine having to search, on a daily basis, for an author
named

Tarquin.Fintim.Linbim.Whinbimlim.Busstop.FtangFtang.Ole.
Biscuit.Barrel@silly-party.com

OK, that is a rather silly example, but trust me that
there are many places where people have very long
names. The ability just to search for "Tarquin", or
even "tarquin*" would be hugely appreciated.

    This has been committed into CVS. I have also included the
    patch file to this report, in case you want to patch your 1.7.8
    version now, as it could be a few weeks before 1.8.0 is
    released with this enhancement.
