[KPhotoAlbum] [Kphotoalbum-bugs] [Bug 145520] Search for tags in tagwindow should search in full string, not just the beginning

I don't know how to handle regexps but I think something like * or ?
would be useful to symbolize that the string I type doesn't need to be
in the beginning of the string

so typing j would return jim, immy and jim brown
typing ?j would return also andrej and majkki

I have all names in 'last name first name 'format (kurppa risto) so
that the grouping works more or less in the alphabetical view too
(though the alphabetical view doesn't work.. anyway..)

So when I want to tag myself, typing kurppa retursn all my family in
the results. If I was able to type ?ris I'd get Chris (what I don't
have in my database :) and risto.

So i think being able to do this would make it easier to tag / make searches.

> Suppose you have a list of people, probably pretty long. You know that there's "Jim Brown" on the current picture, but you can't remember right now what you use as a tag name for him -- is he "jim", "jimmy", or "jim brown"? Typing "j" limits the view to names starting with that letter, which is very useful, IMHO, and you don't want that to match "andrej", for exmaple.
> However, if someone disagrees, please feel free to reopen this bug.
