Cray has changed their naming convention for their modulefiles, e.g. cray-mpich2/5.6.5 instead of doing the sensible approach of cray/mpich2/5.6.5; however, their reasoning may be that they need to enforce that their version is loaded and not a previous mpich2/5.6.5 which may exist in the MODULEPATH before.

However, for whatever reason it may be prudent to allow partial matches.
