IGNORELASTCHAR

I noticed that if the title of an HTML file ended with a question mark, 
the last word in the title would not be indexed.  For example, if I 
have:

	<title>What vendors?</title>

and I searched on "vendors", the file would not come back.  I tweaked 
the config.h file, listed  ?  in IGNORELASTCHAR and in ENDCHARS, then 
recompiled.  It seems to work fine with those settings.  Are there any 
other side effects that I should be aware of when doing so?  If not, 
shouldn't the other punctuation marks be added to these defines as 
well?  That is:

	this		.,')\"?:;]}
	instead of	.,')\"
