[Spread-users] wildcards in groups

Hi Spreaders,

I'm interested in using Spread in a large commercial application.  The 
only thing lacking in Spread is the use of wildcards in the groups.  For 
example,  I would like to subscribe on:


and get the following messages:

x.y.z ,  x.y.stock_quote, x.y.anything_else.something_else

or subscribe on:


and get the following:

x.anything.here.z, ...

We are currently using ttrees to do something similar in another part of 
our application.

Does anyone have any comments regarding replacing/enhancing the 
skiplists and groups with something that would allow wildcarding?
