Hm. I never used it so I never noticed ; it indeed appears to be dropped
If you really need it (we don't know what you actually want to do, so
maybe there's another/better way), maybe you can use an old POM for just
the string match, and a recent POM for the rest.. But I'm not sure if
that's such a good idea or even if that will break something : it's up
