Petar, that capability is available in release 0.7.2 and later. The select-same 
plugin has 2 actions, called something like whole and partial, and for partial 
matching, 2 related config options to specify:
. which character(s) are to be treated as the endpoint for matching, and
. whether to match to the first or last such character(s) in the name.
