in my case, i want to find strings that are similar to a given one. so a lev() return of >2 means i throw that string away. 

maybe another param to levenshtein() could help speed up the function, in that it could return when the 3rd mismatch was found. it would not have to do it's job to the end.

anyway, i'm surprised how fast it is already. :)

No response in 11 years, so safe to conclude that there's little interest in this feature. Also a very good change issue starter also has moved on (other project / chosen better algorithm).
