How? Nick, where is the patch? :)

I understand your POV, but we need to find a solution to satisfy everybody.
If we default to "contains", searches will return too many results.
We could:
1/ add a special case to search on firstname and surname (if start_with)
2/ add a pref to default on contains or start_with
3/ let the libraries who want a different behavior modify the default with some
JS code

I like none of these solutions. Anything else to suggest?
