It would be very usefull if fulltext engine could also find misspelled words (and apply lower match-rating to it). For example, searching for word "example" should also (optionally) find words "examlpe" or "exaple". 

How to repeat:
Search for misspelled word using FULLTEXT index.

Thank you for a reasonable feature request. This feature or, at least, builtin function similar to Oracle's SOUNDEX will be really usefull in some cases.
