2 ideas:
1) Define the loosest item that returns results (likely regex) then search
with slightly tighter criteria within the results.

Good for situations where even partial matches are a small percentage of
the total data

2) Check every record, and give it a score based on proximity to the
search criteria, then sort.

Good for returning the top N results with the possible results being a
large portion of the total.

Of course you could combine the two and get a subset, then score it and

Just ideas
