Currently highlights in weechat are done with a case _in_sensitive comparison.
I would greatly appreciate it if it would be possible to indicate specific words to be a case-sensitive match only, or preferably even to allow regular expression support for it.

For me it would help with being highlighted on my nickname. As my nickname FiXato often gets abbreviated to FiX, I would like to be able to add that to my highlight list, without risking being highlighted everytime says "they should fix something" for instance..

Regular expression would come in handy for IRC Oper tasks as well, as I could monitor for instance for bots with a certain nick/ident/gecos pattern.
