So you are asking for a default search backend that supports stemming , like ElasticSearch?  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stemming
Severity: trivial → enhancement
stemming does appear to cover this search request, as bug 1066934 described and fixed (ff33) what was happening in bug 1070686, so this would have meant a better search result and less entries in bugzilla
