The idea of making packages.d.o appearance and behaviour configurable
via cookies is on my "to be considered" list for quite a while already,
yeah. I've mostly refrained from changing the default behaviour too
much, though.

As for your suggestion: Your specification is incomplete. Currently
there are at least four different things that might happen if you
visit p.d.o/<string>:
1) You only get an exact hit
2) You get an exact hit plus some substring matches
3) You only get substring matches
4) You don't get any hits
Does your proposal only concern case 1 or case 1 and 2?
