Please write your wish here. Do not expect, that others will extract it from a
two side thread.

what can I say about this issue? its obvious

we would like to be able to use regex in autocorrect function

eg1, to autocorrect <space>blah with <space>bleh (this autocorrects blah to 
bleh, only if blah is the first part of a work)
eg2, to autocorrect bleh with nothing (eg delete bleh)
eg3, to autocorrect <space><space><space> with <space><space>

and so on

ofcouse all these can be done with search-and-replace

but autocorrect is already a type of search-and-replace, its a realtime-as-you-
type-search-and-replace, so I dont see why it doesnt support regex

its extremely useful

SBA: I made "a summary" from "a subject" to summarize the findings.

SBA->theusers: Please note that many issues are "cross-read" by many people. Not
to amuse themselves in riddle or "click-and-click-to-find-out-contests", but to
handle large amounts of issues with feasible effort. Therefore one must be very
careful with words like "obvious". And eveb the use of verbs in a summary is not
a shame at all. 

In my words: "This not newspaper, this no riddle contest, this issue tracker
with rules that good..." :-)
