[CWB] query optimization

Hi again,

Reading http://corpus.leeds.ac.uk/help.html reminded me that cqp does 
not seem to do query optimization based on the frequency of the various 
query tokens. For instance, in the BNC

  > "end" "of";


  > "the" "world";

has approximately the same number of hits, but the second is much slower 
(since it has a common word first).

Shouldn't this be a relatively easy thing to fix?
