  Noted. Thought I most likely didn't add "only" because the config name was becoming rather too long, but you have a point.

  a and b are already in the MatchType enum, StartsWithMatch and ContainsMatch respectively, the new config is overriding the current behaviour where if there's no StartsWithMatch, it goes to the ContainsMatch route. As for c, I think that would be too many completions, the accuracy would be blown to bits...
