Adding documentation to the website?
Seriously, it's not such a good idea. It slows down the searching,
and gives the user less control. Just because you think you'd like
to see permission when you type permis. Does not mean your user wishes
to see pineapple when he searches for pine tree. Further it ought to
be possible to prepend the wildcard. Doing both by default will only
exacerbate these issues.
