Looking at that GitHub issue, it seems like the prefix match would not
help here, though. We would need to implement proper version comparison

I still do not see why this should be done as part of the search
request, though. The clients should have access to vercmp(8) or a proper
native version comparison implementation and adding a simple check after
retrieving the search results should be quite easy.
