This will work for matching ABC in the database to A-B-C in mv_searchspec,
but it does nothing for the other way around (A-B-C in the database, ABC in
mv_searchspec). For that, I think you are looking at a modification to
Search.pm, unless somebody has already added code to handle this that I do
not know about.
