If you want to go beyond the first character (press 'm' to get all  
the 'm…' lines, 'a' to get all the 'ma…' lines rather than all the  
'a…' lines) it gets trickier, but several people have worked out  
versions of it. I can't remember quite when, but look in the archives  
for roughly August of last year . . .

So many people come back to this, that it might be something to build  
into a library?
