There's already a substring search. As for case_sensitive, it's an idea,
but currently all words are stored as lowercase, so it's not an easy
feature to add. On the other hand, regular expression matching of words
will come sometime in the near future. (Note that I said words. :-)

Well this is a possibility. It's also a feature that would probably require
some significant testing. :-) After all, we don't want it to
indiscriminately remove documents.

Of course. As it stands now, server_aliases is already implemented and as
it stands will take precedence over any other duplicate elimination scheme.
