I'd like to find groups using a query "... like value" where I can
specify wildcards in the value.

The Hib3GroupDAO method findAllByApproximateAttr uses "like %value%",
and findAllByAttr uses "= value", but what I need is "like value".

I don't see such a method, is there one ? I'll offer to do the work,
does this sound reasonable ?

My use case is that I'm checking our mail namespace for uniqueness. We
store email addresses as attributes, e.g.
and I
want to find groups based on the mail left-hand-side of the @. The
mail right-hand-sides of the @ are variable and dynamic.
