[kepler-dev] Q: What's proper functionality in Digir Quick Search aggregation.

When I do a Quick Search from the Ecogrid Digir service for the term
'mephitis', the quick search where clause is "Scientific name LIKE
mephitis".  The results are aggregated by Scientific Name and there are
different little folders for each Scientific Name.  The first few on my
screen are:

mephitis macroura
mephitis macroura macroura
mephitis macroura milleri


Now, if I drag, say "mephitis macroura" onto the canvas,  a dataset is
created.  The way it works now is it requeries using the where clause
"Scientific Name LIKE mephitis macroura".  This means that the resulting
dataset includes all the results which match the following:  "mephitis
macroura", "mephitis macroura macroura", and "mephitis macroura milleri". 

Is this what is expceted?  Or does the user expect the folder to contain
only those records which EQUAL "mephitis macroura"?
