I guess the idea behind that was, that you can use a simple pattern
to match tclman80, tclman82 and in February tclman83. The same applies
to tk, where we might run into problems, if the match would be something
like tk*-man and tk*-bin. Just image a package tkxyz, that gets split
into tkxyz-man and tkxyz-bin. Suddenly the match, that was supposed for
major versions, applies to the xyz name as well.

Bye, Bjoern

P.S.: Thanks for the examples. I'll use them for tk.
