Matthew, I don't think we can reasonably make this the default.  I'm 
sorry.  The '.' tells the lemma search code to enter different logic 
which iterates each item at the lowest level and see if it has a prefix 
up to the '.'.  This logic is slower than the map lookup normally used, 
and there are quite a few bottom level entryAttributes which are not 

Since the API has changed, I'm sure you are checking something like:

pkg-config --modversion sword

So, I hope it's not too much trouble to use the old syntax if compiling 
against the 1.5.x source base.
