@juliank As I said on IRC, IMO ?name should have the behaviour that ?exact-name is described as having, and the current name behaviour should be renamed to something that indicates more explicitly that it's a regex (?name-regex, ?name-pattern, something like that).
As ?name is named that way for legacy support, I wonder if introducing something like ?name-regex an an alias for ?name would still be good, so that people who want to be _explicit_ that it's a regex have that option?
@juliank Effectively ?name is deprecated in favour of the explicit options (?exact-name and ?name-regex). What do you think?
@Odd_Bloke I think that probably makes sense. But probably should do that in aptitude too.
@juliank Yeah, I don't see why not!
