------- Comment #3 from jmdyck@ibiblio.org  2008-04-10 17:43 -------
Avoiding the term "absolute value", the problem is that, depending on the order
in which you pass two args to fts:wordDistance(), it will (in general) return
two different results, only one of which is correct. The onus is on the caller
to pass the args in the order that delivers the correct result. But it does not
always do so, as pointed out in the original comment.
