Well...this is how SWModule has done this since forever.

Yes, that's from one of the help texts in Xiphos' advanced search. It
simply reflects what has been the case since (what I have always
perceived as) The Dawn Of Net.Time.
See src/modules/swmodule.cpp, the description of case -3 before
SWModule::search(). And then tell me what the 3 special cases are
about, that have to do with noticing "G3588".
(Love the comment: "cheeze. skip empty article tags that weren't
assigned to any text". Hm.)
