Is there a way to get mysql to change the default from 3 to 2 letter words (or
less) that are ignored in fulltext indexes?
I'm running version 4 alpha. I checked the TODO and it's not listed. Is it
possible to make this a config.h option? A minimum of 4 letters for a word to be
included in a fulltext index seems a bit restrictive.
