This really belongs on the jabberd list
(http://mail.jabber.org/mailman/listinfo/jabberd/, or subscribe through

'like' isn't an operator supported by the filter code, but it's also
SQL-specific (and probably different according to SQL version), so one
would need a mechanism to generalise this to other types of storage
(e.g. bdb).

What are you trying to do with the like operator ?
