I did send a response, and it's not too difficult. But see below.

Now the initial request was more along these lines (which is easier):
The request was to match "foo" or "bar" or "blah." For your example,
you'd have to decide if "~" is to be stripped out (I'd say yes) and
whether you'll just go with prefix matching to get "foobar" from
If someone submits a function that splits a URLs into words, I'll finish
it. It's a matter of a time tradeoff--I'd rather work on things other
than that function and it's probably faster for me to put in the correct
place (in Retriever.cc).
