Default Search doesn't like short words

What if I want to search for "LWP"? The search function says it's too short. I think this is a serious shortcoming.

Google finds 791,000 results and Yahoo 224,000. Why this forum works this way???

Anything less that 4 can return to many results, slowing the database and eating resources.
