Description

Is it possible to add a signal in makeSearchString so an extension can change the behaviour of the backend search?

Possible use case for fe_users:
Search term "Lisa Mair" where Lisa is stored in the first_name
column and Mair in the last_name column.
The current search query won't find this entry (Since it searches for "Lisa Mair" in first_name and "Lisa Mair" in last_name).
With the new signal an extension could add something like:

OR MATCH(first_name,last_name) AGAINST('+Lisa* +Mair*' IN BOOLEAN MODE)
