[pacman-dev] Feature request: Show exact matches first

Dear developers,

I'd like to request a feature. When I search for some package, let's say 

$ pacman -Ss openconnect (or -Qs)

it takes quite a while until I get any results on my netbook (Atom N450 
cpu). Maybe this could be sped up by showing exact matches right away. 
I've had this situation quite some times now and it can be a real pain 
in the ass to wait for 10 seconds (this may vary of course) when I 
simply want to know whether I have a particular package installed.
