Add a comparison function in the TULIP table API which allows to match either the value or blank

Say I have to match two fields to find my record in a table.

Further say one of those fields are expected to be either blank or some value BUT never “”, i.e. an empty string.

Right now matching this kind of scenario requires two different types of queries to be defined and to toggle between those two types depending on what kind of scenario is expected. The “equal” match type cannot be used as it cannot deal with the logical NULL case. For this you have to use the “blank” match type. This renders some use cases either extremely difficult to pull of or impossible to accomplish.

A match type along the way of “value-if-not-empty-or-null” would do the trick.
