Equate caret to asterisk in blocking filters except at the end of the URL pattern.
I just noticed this comment in a uBlock Origin issue, in which Raymond Hill said that the extension equates ^ to * within a blocking filter except if the caret is the last character in the URL pattern: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/issues/435#issuecomment-118360778
After thinking it through for a while, I came to the conclusion that this is acceptable, that the only reasonable place to put a caret in would be the end of a URL pattern, and AdBlock might find some efficiency gains by doing what Raymond Hill did; I haven't dug through the code to see whether AdBlock already does this, however.
