We still do strict template matching. If you query for event with
subject_uri=bar then you wont get any events with subject_uri=foo,
disregarding the subject_current_uri.

Otoh if you query for events with subject_current_uri=bar you will get
all events for subject_uri=foo too because these events will have been
set to subject_current_uri=bar. Note that we are *not* being clever
about matching on both the subject_uri and subject_current_uri fields.
It's still strict matching on the subject_current_uri field that gives
you these results.

Bug description:
An issue we are facing at the moment is that ppl lose track of there files in a 
timeline if the file was moved around or renamed. I would propose using 
taskview or patch nautilus to actually grab those events and either:
1) Modify the uris in the uris table
2) Create a new table with    | new_id | old_uri_id | event | to map uris to 
their actual ids and the event that allowed the change, this would allow us to 
track a history of renaming or moving a file. It will look a bit like the 

9 | 9 | 48124  # CREATE EVENT
12 | 9 | 48126 # MOVE EVENT

In other words the last row means uri 12 was moved from uri 9 with event 48126


3) Create a changable_uri table that is a map of the uri table. it gets updated 
upon moved and rename.
We then add new resulttype that allow you to ask for either pureSubject or 
adaptedSubject. depending on which one is chosen we then use the according 
table in the join of the find_events_query :)
