Keyword Highlighting Issues

First, I want to say that I have created a bug report and a feature request for these items. I want to see what the other users think about this. Please reply with a +1 if you agree.

Issue #1:
Syntax highlighting (regex) does not allow \s or literal spaces. This is a bug. It has been here since 7.3 when the feature was released, and it remains in 8.0 beta release. This really needs to be fixed.

Issue #2:
A great syntax highlighting feature would be that if you could match a line and only colorize a substring of that line with a particular color.

For example:

network area 0

regex: ^network\s+(\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+)\s(\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+) area \d+

This would match the whole line, but then you pick one color for the first capture group, and pick another color for the second capture group.

network area 0
