We have been working on a replacement autocompletion API that is more
forgiving than a strict prefix search.  The scoring algorithm's have a long
way to go but we have the first run through of building the completion
index for enwiki so i thought i would share:

Here are a couple examples, feel free to change the text= around to other
things.

http://cirrus-browser-bot.wmflabs.org/w/api.php?action=cirrus-suggest&limit=100&text=hotel%20cal
http://cirrus-browser-bot.wmflabs.org/w/api.php?action=cirrus-suggest&limit=100&text=wikim


Don't stress out too much over the scoring yet, we know it needs some work
and have plans to integrate page view information in here to help more
popular articles rise the the top.
