Hi Simon.

It seems that datasette currently has wildcard-searches disabled by default (along with the boolean search-options, NEAR-queries and more, and despite the docs). If I try out the search-url provided in the docs (, it does not handle wildcard-searches, and I'm unable to make it work on my datasette-instance.

I would argue that wildcard-searches is such a standard query, that it should be enabled by default. Requiring "_searchmode=raw" when using prefix-searches seems unnecessary. Plus: What happens to non-ascii searches when using "_searchmode=raw"? Is the "escape_fts"-function from datasette.utils ignored?
