There was an article on forums.mysql.com (save the content, not the link) that takes, as
the in parameter, a comma delimited list of values and then breaks them down and inserts
them into a temp table. The article uses and innodb table, which I find sort of odd as a
memory table would probably be faster.
It uses this to join it to the table/columns that the search is being conducted on. This
seems to be the most common approach I've found. The problem with this approach is that I
don't know how to join a table against a column when you are looking for like data instead
This gets me closer, but not exactly there yet.
