Much to my dismay, I've learned that the mySQL minimum
indexable/searchable word length is 3 characters.  This is a real
problem for me.  Anybody know a workaround, or how to tweak mySQL to
allow for matches of words 3 chars or less.

>From the online mysql docs

"MySQL uses a very simple parser to split text into words. A ``word''
is any sequence of characters consisting of letters, numbers, `'', and
`_'. Any ``word'' that is present in the stopword list or is just too
short (3 characters or less) is ignored. "

Any thoughts, help would be terrific!  Thanks!
