sure .. escaping ends up being the same as removing. but i guess it would be the better approach
of course. but still is there some clean solution that doesnt mean a lot of coding work on
my end to handle dash both as a special and as a normal char.

something like doing the search twice both with the dash escaped and not escaped and then
some intelligent scoring to produce the final result set.
