Ok, I understand now how it could be resolved differently.
Doesn't it mean that from now on all payees should have MyMoneyPayee::matchKey
(and not MyMoneyPayee::matchName) by default and first key should be created
automatically and be something like this '^Check$' but then
MyMoneyPayee::matchName wouldn't be needed anymore. Moreover new user would
have to learn regular expressions syntax.

That seems like a lot of complications for average user which only have
cumbersome payees.

Wouldn't it be better if regular expressions (MyMoneyPayee::matchKey) would be
partially matched and plain names (MyMoneyPayee::matchName) would be exactly
