There is no regex capability which would allow you to specify e.g. word boundaries. "Tough beans." :-)

Yes, there is. It's called \b, and it looks for "word boundaries". Now, I believe that implementing the code to wrap the various regexed search terms correctly might be less trivial: I haven't looked at that code yet, so I don't know if the implementation somehow makes it difficult.
