[EP-tech] Search, for partial matches

I want to perform a search... however I want to search for
a) all records where *part* of the field matches, and
b) I do not want that search to be case-sensitive

   my $email = 'Ian';
   my $ds = $session->get_repository->get_dataset('foo');
   my $searchexp = EPrints::Search->new(
       session => $session,
       dataset => $ds,
   $searchexp->add_field( $ds->get_field('email'), $email );
   warn $searchexp->render_description->toString;
   my $results = $searchexp->perform_search;
   warn "found " . $results->count . " records\n";

returns 0 matches, even though there is at least one user (me) with an 
email address of "ian.stuart at ed...." in the dataset foo
