3 new irc options added:
- irc.look.highlight_server
- irc.look.highlight_channel
- irc.look.highlight_pv

With value "(?-i)$nick" in these options, you can make nick highlight case sensitive.
Or at your choice, you can set empty string here and use other highlight options (weechat.look.highlight and weechat.look.highlight_regex).

Note that option weechat.look.highlight_regex becomes case insensitive by default, so you will have to use "(?-i)" before regex to make it case sensitive.

Have fun with highlights!

+1 to this please, my nick when lower-cased is also a common word.

Alternative solution: add an option to make default nick highlighting case-sensitive.

  My nick is Arm, pretty common word and fake highlighting drives me crazy.

  Add an option to toggle the default nick highlighting off, so that only weechat.look.highlight and weechat.look.highlight_regex (the one I care about since it's case SENSITIVE) can trigger a highlight event.
