Shame about that, but if someone does a full postcode search and there
are OSM objects tagged with that exact postcode then wouldn't it be
better just to return those objects or at least have them at the top
of the list?

In my case there are 3 buildings tagged with the full postcode but
when I search for it they appear below an entry for the suburb of the
town which I think if shown at all should be further down the list.
