The Like/Containing/Starting with code has just been reworked in the FB
2.0 code base.

The new logic supports all text fields, including blobs (new!) and runs
3,000 times faster (584sec vs .0187sec)

The new logic, however, does not extend Firebird functionality to
include MATCH operator, this may be added at a later date.
