Would it be possible to add a feature to the KudoZ glossary search that would make suggestions/matches in the event of typos?

Example 1) Word Reference: Here I mispelled the word "inquisitorio" in the search bar and I am provided with a list of possible matches on the left (one of which is the word I am looking for and I can click on the link instead of having to edit or re-type the word):
http://www.wordreference.com/iten/inquisotri

Example 2) Leo: Leo offers suggestions with links provided that only one letter is wrong. For example, here I misspelled the word "Gesellschaft" and I am presented with a link to the correct choice):
http://dict.leo.org/ende?lang=en&lp=ende&search=geselschaft
