#5039: Make search function more typo tolerant

 I was searching for a place on http://www.openstreetmap.org and had one
 letter wrong. My search string was "willi brandt frankfurt" and it showed
 up no results, because the place is called "Willy-Brandt-Platz". A search
 with "willy brandt frankfurt" would have displayed the result. Would it be
 possible to implement a search function that is more tolerant to
 typographical errors ?

 Greetings, Bob
