[Catacomb] Patch to enable exact full text search (boolean mode)



This patch adds a directive, DavDBMSUseExactSearch, which can be used to enable
the strict boolean mode, instead of the default relevancy heuristics for
FULLTEXT search.

The reason is that MySQL by default can ommit some search results it considers
not relevant (for instance if the search terms appear in too many rows). While
this is great for implementing some things like forum search engines etc., for
other applications all of the appearances of a search string need to be
returned. This new directive allows users to specify this behaviour.
