In this case, we're storing the overall value length and sorting it on
that, then alphabetically.

Also, how are your queries fashioned? If you're doing a prefix query,
everything that matches it should score the same. If you're only doing
a prefix query, you might need to add a term for exact matches as well
to get them to show up.

00 (or ABCD00) may not be suggested currently as it doesn't score high enough. But we are
really trying to get all distinct values starting from the smallest (up to a certain number
of suggestions).
