You could use BuzzWords, but that would effect all metanames.

Another problem.  Would be nice to set the fuzzy mode on a per-metaname

That happens at a higher up level -- as far as the indexing code knows
you are just adding a <meta name="links" content="this_word">.

It's just code -- so a hack is always possible.  In index.c look at
"index_path_parts" -- you could likely turn of stemming around the
indexstring() call.  The fuzzy_mode is in:


so save that locally, then set it to FUZZY_NONE, call indexstring() and
then reset.

That's just off the top of my head.  No promises that it works...
