      Description

      In api_data.py, we define the configuration prefix_search to enable early exit on a prefix search in search_near. However, we have been using prefix_key to enable that option, see cur_std.c and one of our search_near test.

      We need to change the name in api_data.py as we may have users who already use the configuration name prefix_key.

      It would be worth investigating how we ended up with this discrepancy.

      Definition of done:

      Discrepancy removed and prefix_key is the only configuration name used (unless we agree on a different fix).
